Friendsgiving Brunch Ideas For Kids

Give Thanks with a Friendsgiving Brunch

Kids will gobble up this cute (and tasty!) party idea

Friendsgiving Brunch at your house is an excellent opportunity for parents to introduce children to the spirit of Turkey Day, start a new tradition and give thanks for their friends.

Local party planner, Molly Shapiro Boe of The Preppy Hostess® has these ideas and tips for your Friendsgiving Brunch:

The Tabletop:

Create a tabletop centerpiece using artificial leaves and flowers or pumpkins. Hang faux fall leaves from the ceiling or around windows. Use them to make an arrangement on the table as well.

The Food:

What’s better than turkey? A pancake in the shape of a turkey! Make one large, round pancake for the body and a smaller one for the head. Then cut out two heart-shaped pancakes with a cookie cutter for the wings. Adorn its face with edible candy eyes and cut up fruit for the beak, feet and neck. Then fashion the tail with scrambled eggs and mixed fruit.

The DIY Activity:

While hand turkeys are always adorable, take the creativity level up a notch with paper bag turkey puppets. Give each child a paper bag and have them glue on feathers, construction paper and googly eyes for decoration.

The Dessert:

End things on a sweet note by passing out donut holes as a take home treat. A plastic bag and ribbon is all you need to say thanks for coming!
