Thanksgiving is a time when friends and family get together to enjoy a festive meal and celebrate all they have to be grateful for. 

At school, both my boys have a traditional class lunch to help them learn the meaning behind the special day, and parents help out by providing some of the traditional side dishes. F I made these no-bake “Thanksgiving Marshmallow Turkeys” for the class to enjoy, which were all “gobbled-up” in an instant!

This is a very simple and easy Thanksgiving dessert idea that takes very little time to prepare, but is super delicious and is sure to liven up any festive table. This is great for those picky eaters that don’t eat a lot of the traditional Thanksgiving desserts like pumpkin pie or other festive treats. You can even have your kids help you make these yummy Thanksgiving treats!
