Toddler Tower Thanksgiving Recipes - Easy Tasks for Tiny Hands!
We love turkey and stuffing as much as anyone, but when it comes down to it, Thanksgiving isn’t really about the food. It’s about being together. It’s permission to set aside time for a day or two to stop hustling and simply spend time with the people we love most. It’s a chance to remember what we’re grateful for.
It’s an opportunity to create magical moments and memories with our little ones.
Anyone with a toddler can tell you what our sweet one, two, and three year olds want most - to help! Little ones this age LOVE to participate in whatever the grownups are doing. The dadada Baby Toddler Tower was designed to help curious kiddos get the boost they need to reach the kitchen counter, the dining table, or the sink - wherever the learning and helping is happening!
This Thanksgiving, we’re celebrating the joy of being together with a short collection of toddler-friendly recipes that make it easy for your tiny helper to lend a hand in the kitchen. Pair these delicious appetizers and desserts with your Toddler Tower for a Thanksgiving full of good eats, great memories, and one very happy great big little helper!
All of your family’s favorite charcuterie or cheese board items
For artistically inclined kiddos, there can be a whole lot of joy in arranging a big plate of snacks! Offer your toddler assorted cheeses, meats, olives, nuts, and chocolates to arrange into a turkey, or whatever design they please!
A super easy way to use up your leftovers that toddlers will love! Kids can help layer each leftover ingredient into the tortillas, experiment with different ratios, and taste-test everything as they go, both individually and as fun flavor combos.
Mess Factor: Medium. Food coloring and sticky fingers involved.
What You’ll Need:
Green Fruit Leather
Rice Krispie treats are a classic, and these tiny pumpkin-shaped ones are a sure hit. Toddlers can help pour cereal, help stir marshmallow/butter mixture, shape the pumpkins into balls, and add the Tootsie Roll stems and fruit roll-up leaves.
Mess Factor: High. Flour, sticky caramel, and rolled dough involved.
What You’ll Need:
Round Cookie Cutter
Apple Pie Filling
These toddler-sized pies are too cute to miss. Little ones can help roll out dough, cut pie crust circles with a cookie cutter, fill the muffin tins, and add toppings.
