Last Minute Thanksgiving Fun Food Ideas!

This is a VERY busy week for hostesses all over the United States!  I am personally cooking TWO turkeys this week, along with ALL the traditional fixin’s for Thursday’s big feast day.  I’ve made lists and more lists to keep myself organized, and in between making lists, I’ve browsed for ideas for making our holiday fun and unique! I was thinking mostly about foods my kids would enjoy (or could help with the making), but these ideas are great for “kids” of ALL ages!

From Living Locurto, some SUPER FUN  Thanksgiving veggie tray ideas for the holidays:
