Simple Last Minute Thanksgiving Ideas for All Ages!

Thanksgiving is nearly here and it's a truly special time to take stock of all we have to be grateful for. It's also a time for family togetherness, eating, and kicking off the holiday season.

Looking for some simple last minute Thanksgiving ideas that would be appropriate for all ages? I've got a few you might want to try!

Easy & Delicious Thanksgiving Appetizer 

This simple and delicious Thanksgiving appetizer only calls for three ingredients: 

  • Refrigerated crescent rolls (or you can substitute pastry dough) 
  • Cranberry relish
  • Brie 
Simply roll each crescent into a little twist and stuff with a small amount of brie. Bake at 375 degrees for ten minutes and top with the cranberry relish. You can also mix the cheese and relish together and bake it all together. 

Easy Thanksgiving Craft 

An adorable blog I stumbled across spotlighted this project and I just had to try it! So easy and wouldn't it be really fun for all ages? 

Paint a lovely fall tree with broccoli of all things! 

All you need is some acrylic paint, paper or a canvas and broccoli! 

Mix your colors to your style and get to painting! This would also make a great way to decorate your place cards for the Thanksgiving table. 

Thanksgiving Treats in the Lunchbox 

I used to love opening my lunch to find a little note or treat from my mom. With Thanksgiving coming soon, here are a few simple ways to add some joy to your child's lunch box. 

From Oatmeal Creme Pies, to cups of chocolate pudding, and even individual cracker snacks, just about anything can be turned into a turkey with some googly eyes and trimmings! Check out how one blogger made an adorable snack that would also be fun to use as place cards for your Thanksgiving table! 

Hopefully these ideas inspire you to try something creative this Thanksgiving season. 

I have so much to be thankful for and that definitely includes YOU! Thanks for reading my blog. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!
