Thanksgiving Blessings to You and Yours!

Hi Everyone!

Isn't this an adorable shot of my Storytimer, Christian? He did a fantastic job on his Loopy Turkey (can you imagine where I got that name from?). These were made at our Thanksgiving storytime on November 23. The children had a lot of fun separating out the loop colors for the feathers. And, of course, eating them thereafter! The recipe is below.

There will be lots of holiday cheerful programming in December. YAYA Christmas Party will be December 7 at 5:30 pm and the TPH @ The Bean Holiday With Music meeting will be December 14 at 3:30 pm. The Christmas preschool storytimes will be December 14 and 17. There's lots of fun to be had!

I hope that you have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving. Take care and come see me during the holidays for all your reading (and fun!) needs!


Loopy Turkey


1 egg shaped Rice Crispy treat, 1 red Twizzler piece for snood, 3 candy corns, 2 small marshmallows, 2 mini chocolate chips, White cookie icing for glue, 5 toothpicks
5 yellow loops, 5 blue loops, 5 red loops, 5 orange loops, 5 green loops

Step 1 - Using icing, glue mini chocolate chips onto 2 marshmallows for turkey’s eyes. Let dry.

Step 2 – Insert 5 toothpicks into top of turkey for “feathers”

Step 3 – Lay crispy treat on its back. Glue candy corn for nose

Step 4 - Glue on the red snood just off of the nose

Step 5 - Glue on eyes. May want to let icing harden before next step

Step 6 – Stand turkey upright. Glue two candy corn feet

Step 7 – With your child, separate the different colors of loops

Step 8 - Stack same colors on the toothpicks. You may wish to glue with icing.
