Thanksgiving Ideas for Kids to Help With

I am not sure about your kids but mine always loved to help in the kitchen. What can these little hands do? Well they could help you do what ever you are doing but if you are super busy and want to give them your own project here are a couple of great ideas:

Mini Pies

Kids could make mini pies along side of you. Simply allow them to use pie dough and cut out 5 circles using a small bowl (butter bowl the small size would work great) the scraps can be reserved for strips to go on top. Press these 5 circles into muffin cup tins. Press up sides. Fill with the same pie filling as you are using or allow your child to use their favorite pie filling. Top the filling with the strips. Bake at 425 degrees for 18 minutes.

Relish Tray
Our family always has relish tray with many meals but especially the holiday meal. Why not put your child in charge of this very important dish? Simply precut the veggies for the tray or purchase pre sliced veggies. Then place your child in charge of the designing the relish tray. You may be surprised of what they come up with.

So the next time you r little chef wants to help in the kitchen during the holidays you will have a few ideas for them planned and ready to go.
