Thanksgiving Fun

Need some ideas for your Thanksgiving holiday camp or after-school program?

Or maybe you'd like to hold a Thanksgiving theme day at camp this summer.

Here are some great ideas from the folks at Disney's Family Fun, including crafts, recipes, table games and more:

Here is the recipe for the Tiny Turkey Dinner in our picture:

This tiny turkey dinner is actually an amazingly delicious dessert. With cookies, cupcakes, chocolate, and frosting how could you possibly go wrong with this Thanksgiving themed treat.


Yellow frosting

Decorative cookies (we used a Peek Freans Arrowroot biscuit)

Baked and frosted cupcakes

Brach's Maple Nut Goodies candy

2 tablespoons chocolate chips melted

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

White frosting

Yellow decorators' gel butter

Green nonpareil peas

Red sugar


For each one, spread a layer of yellow frosting on a decorative cookie (we used a Peek Freans Arrowroot biscuit) and set it atop a baked and frosted cupcake.

Add a serving of turkey (thin slices of a Brach's Maple Nut Goodies candy) and gravy (2 tablespoons of chocolate chips melted with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil makes enough to drizzle on 2 dozen cupcakes).

For side dishes, serve up some white frosting mashed potatoes topped with yellow decorators' gel butter, green nonpareil peas, and red sugar crystal cranberry sauce.
