Thanksgiving Food and Fun
Every year the T monster and I do a thanksgiving craft. I also always make fried apple pies every thanksgiving. This is a big hit in our family and always requested. What’s awesome is they are so easy to make! This year I thought I’d share some of our traditions with you!
First let’s start with the craft. This year we made a:
Paper Plate Turkey
1. Let your toddler paint the white paper. There are no rules here. Just paint whatever wherever. Meanwhile, I painted the plate brown. Older kids can probably do this themselves.
Next, we have the apple pies. These are super simple to make and the recipe is easily multiplied for larger batches.
Fried Apple Pies
1 can Grands Buscuits
2 green apples (I like Granny Smith)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1. Peel and dice the apples.
2. Apple is a sauce pot and mix in cinnamon and brown sugar. Heat until warm.
3. Roll out the biscuits into discs. Place a heaping spoonful of the Apple mixture in the center. Coat the edge of the disc with water and fold over to seal.
4. Heat vegetable oil in pan. Once hot fry pies 2 at a time until they are golden brown. This should take a few minutes per side.
Both the food and the craft are super easy to make and they both were a hit!! The apple pies make a great on the go snack as well!! Hope you try these and let me know how they turn out!!
