I hosted the cutest little guests at my home yesterday! I wanted this luncheon to be a fun afternoon for the children. Eating kid friendly food and creating seasonal crafts together.
Turkeys are incredibly beautiful creatures, with loads of curiosity and personality. They truly deserve to live a happy life. Those long and lovely feathers are just the outside of their beauty. And these beautiful birds are worth celebrating rather than eating on Thanksgiving.
I am hosting my first Vegan Thanksgiving this year, and first up is the children's luncheon. Hoping the littles will ease me into the adult Thanksgiving I have in a few days.
I have provided a few vegan food options for your children this Holiday season. A meat-free, dairy free, plant-based Thanksgiving is easier than ever!
I filled mini tin buckets with washable markers so the children were able to color on the tablecloth.
"Welcome to our VEGAN Thanksgiving, a turkey thanks you"
Putting the finishing touches on the table before our little guests arrive...
Each child received mini CINNAHOLIC vegan cinnamon rolls and a shot of frosting for their thank you favors.
Wheat bread with Peanut Butter and Grape Jam for the body
Carrot sticks for the legs
Apple slices for the wings
Sliced vegan "Daiya" brand cheese for the beak
Candy for the eyes
Decorating Gel for the snood
Cornucopia Rolls and Veggies
Crescent rolls formed into a cornucopia
Filled with carrot sticks, celery sticks and cherry tomatoes
I had each child, with the assistance of their Mom make:
Wooden Thankful Tree
We asked the children to write their name on a leaf and what they were thankful for.
"My name is Graham and I am thankful for music"
It was a successful vegan luncheon! We loved watching the children interact and make crafts together, even stealing food off each other plates!
I am so glad they enjoyed the food!
