These Easy Oreo Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies are the perfect Thanksgiving activity for kids to balance the fun of Thanksgiving with the importance of remembering our blessings. They make the perfect treat for the kids’ table at Thanksgiving too!
This week I had to break out my scarves and sweaters and it made me so happy. Not to mention I also got my kiddos working on their Halloween costume ideas. But, I know that October will be over before I know it, and we’ll be thinking about Thanksgiving and I thought it would be fun to share theses Easy Oreo Thanksgiving Turkey Cookies.
Sometimes I think it’s hard to think of fun ideas for Thanksgiving because Halloween is full of so many fun treat ideas, party ideas, and fun costumes. So, afterward, it’s nice to focus on one of my favorite holidays – Thanksgiving. I love it because it can help us remember what we are grateful for right before the busy seasons of Christmas hits us.
Thanksgiving is like a nice little break before the chaos
But, I struggle sometimes with trying to get ideas to make the kids interested. I think it’s more important for my kiddos to learn gratitude than anything, but I think these oreo thanksgiving turkey cookies are a great way to balance the seriousness of remembering our blessings along with the fun of a Thanksgiving activity that kids can do.
The best part is these are SO simple. If I can do them – you can do them.
