Getting Ready for the Feast
Thanksgiving fun for you and your children
Miniature horns of plenty created from sugar cones and fruit candies make striking party favors for a Thanksgiving table. Your kids can help assemble these treats that also double as decorative nametags for your Thanksgiving table.
To start, tie a ribbon around the opening of a sugar cone. Then with a tube of store-bought decorator’s icing and a steady hand, squirt the name of a guest along the side of the cone. Place the cone on a doily-covered saucer. Now your children can fill the cones with a variety of delectable treats, such as marzipan fruit, candy corn, fruit-shaped candies, and citrus slices. Or, for sugar-sensitive younger children, you can use cereal. And for the health conscious, use vegetables. Let the goodies spill out over the opening of the cone and around the saucer.
