Thanksgiving is a week away, but my children’s parties are tomorrow. Ever since my son was in preschool I have always volunteered to be responsible for the “treats” for most class parties. This year is no different and for John’s First Grade Progressive Party at school I have prepared a few treats that fit the theme of the Thanksgiving table:
Pumpkin Bread Slices: See my recipe for for Pumpkin Bread. Cut into smaller bite size pieces for little hands.
Cranberry Orange Muffins: See recipe below
Corn Muffins: See recipe below
Allergen Free Turkey Trail Mix: My kids mix up this “Turkey Trail Mix” from bowls of Raisins, Dried Cranberries, Mini Pretzels, Dairy Free Mini Chocolate Chips, Kix Cereal, Marshmallows. Feel free to add to or omit according to your own preferences.
Fresh Clementine and Apple Slices: Place peeled Clementine and Apple slices in a pretty little dish. Perfect for little hands, no peeling required!
It is a festive, beautiful and relatively healthy assortment of baked treats and fruit. Try a few for your own little turkey’s class parties! Here are my Cranberry Orange and Corn Muffins….they’re super easy to handmix in a bowl with your kids.
