Thanksgiving Crudite Appetizer for The Kids


Thanksgiving crudite and dip


Thanksgiving is a holiday that's meant to spend  with family and friends. This is a fun activity that you can do with your little ones to get ready for the occasion. It's easy, it's festive, edible and  cute. In addition, all of the ingredients are healthy. Would you call it food art?




Do you remember my Halloween food art post that featured a few photos of various Halloween food creations that my talented friend Gail made for Halloween?

Well Gail is at it again. This time she made a Thanksgiving turkey out of fruit and vegetables. 

Her creation is simple but cute and so easy it would be a great project to make with the kids.

Thankgiving crudite and dip

I always serve a few appetizers on Thanksgiving for when everyone is congregating prior to the meal.  This adorable crudite platter lends itself to any type of dip.


Ingredients: 
You will need a yellow pear, raisins, red pepper, baby carrots, celery sticks, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes and a dip of your choice.

Directions: 
Assemble ingredients according to the photo. Use toothpicks to hold on the eyes and nose.


This recipe will be shared on Beth Fish Reads- Weekend Cooking where anyone can share a food related post ( appears on Saturday)  and my daily lists of blog carnivals

  4. So cute and easy! Some of the crudite platters I've seen on blogs and Pinterest would take an hour to prepare. I like quick and easy better! :-)

  11. Cute idea and it's always good to get the kids involved in cooking. By the way your broccoli post is not available (no. 41 on Fiesta Friday). Thanks for sharing as I know there are a lot of bloggers with kids.

      Glad to meet you. Thanks for visiting and commenting. I just checked out your blog and found some awesome recipes. I don't know why #41 wasn't working? It seems to be working now - ( I did update that post so maybe it was down for 5 minutes.) Thanks for letting me know. Happy Thanksgiving
