Whip up this easy turkey veggie snack tray in no time to wow your Thanksgiving guests this year!
We love making cute foods simple and easy over here! Our goal has always been to have parents and kids come together and make fun and delicious foods in a no-fuss way. Case in point this adorable Easy Turkey Veggie Snack Tay is a great way for kids to get involved in making Thanksgiving dinner!
This Turkey Veggie Tray is also a fun food craft for kids to help make.
If your kids are old enough to use a kid-safe knife we encourage them to try slicing the bell peppers or cucumbers! If they are not hold enough to handle that, they can easily arrange the slices on top of the turkey to make his “feathers” stand out as bold and colorful as possible!
What kind of vegetables should I use for this Thanksgiving snack tray?
As mentioned we used an array of yellow, red, and orange veggies like bell peppers, carrots and tomatoes. We added some sliced cucumbers for some green. The turkey body is made of the end of an orange bell pepper and the legs are made of carrots!
What kind of dip is best for this Turkey veggie platter?
We are partial to Ranch dip and think veggies taste great with this dip! But you can use any kind of dip or even hummus or a green type of Goddess or Avocado dip!
