Making crafts and cooking up recipes are a fun way to celebrate fall and Thanksgiving with the kids. My girls love doing arts and crafts and also enjoy helping mama in the kitchen. As such, we decided to start celebrating Thanksgiving early with some activities.
Here is a fun and easy Thanksgiving craft and a yummy apple cider recipe to try at home with the little ones. Both activities use Juicy Juice beverages which I always keep on hand. I stock up on them because Juicy Juice is made with 100% juice rather than filled with artificial sweeteners and other fillers. I also find they’re a great value price-wise.
JUICY JUICE THANKSGIVING OWLS CRAFT
This craft is so easy that even the youngest kids can help. Kids can decorate Juicy Juice boxes with cute Thanksgiving owl wrap cut-outs. Use the finished craft as festive, colorful centerpieces at the kids’ table. The little ones will enjoy drinking out of the decorated juice boxes as well!
- Three of your little ones’ favorite Juicy Juice flavors in the 6.75 oz box
- A pair of safety scissors
- Juicy Juice Thanksgiving Owls template (click here)
Gather the materials.
Cut out the Thanksgiving Owl templates from the print-outs.
Align the face of theThanksgiving Owls with the front of the juice box. Lie the juice box face down on the table and begin folding all sides up towards you to wrap the juice box with the template. Secure the template with tape on the back of the juice box and one beneath the juice box (on the bottom). This will adhere the template to the juice box.
The Thanksgiving Owls are now ready to perch on the kiddie table!
JUICY JUICE APPLE CIDER
The kids will love to warm up with this warm, delicious apple cider. It’s super simple to make with only a few ingredients!
As a side note, make sure to teach your kids about Thanksgiving – not just the celebratory aspects but also the historical aspects. Here are some tips in the article: “Are You Teaching the ‘Real Story’ of the First Thanksgiving.“
