Easy Thanksgiving Turkey DIY Craft

• When my niece suggested this one, I was like “eh,” but it is cute. I think it is more kid-ish, so keep that in mind. It would be GREAT for a children’s table centerpiece.

• Because of the hot glue gun, I suggest this craft can be made by older children under adult supervision (and you may want to man the glue gun and then have your child hold the pieces together). Goop might work (although I have not done it), but it will have a longer drying time.

• The pumpkin purchased had folds. This worked great as it hid the ends of the turkey feathers in the pumpkin-body. Keep that in mind when selecting your artificial pumpkin for the turkey’s body.

Easy Halloween S’mores Recipe

Easy Halloween S'mores Recipe. You do not need a campfire to get the great taste of S'mores. Make these delicious Halloween S'mores in your kitchen in about 10 minutes. Great for parties and snacks, these cute little Halloween s'mores are a simple sweet treat adults and children will love!


Easy Halloween S’mores Recipe

You do not need a campfire to get the great taste of S’mores. Make these delicious Halloween S’mores in your kitchen in about 10 minutes. Great for parties and snacks, these cute Halloween s’mores are a simple sweet treat adults and children will love!

These are one of the easiest treats you can make!! And they taste great.

The etymology of an s’mores suggests it is a contraction of “some more” as in “give me some more of that delicious chocolate-marshmallow-campfire-goodness!!”

Notes:

• These are jumbo marshmallows. The larger the marshmallow, the more difficult it is to work with, so keep that in mind. These take several bites to eat. You can use large marshmallows instead for a quick one-bite treat!

• While we used Mini Reese’s Cups, Tootsie Rolls, and Hershey Kisses for toppers (the kisses worked, and looked the best!), you do not “need” a candy topper.

• These are whole, jumbo marshmallows. They will burn quickly. Pay attention when you brûlée as you will probably need to blow out a fire.

• If you are not sure how fast the candy melts in your local grocery store turnover, but some Wilton chocolates. They are a great consistency and generally easier to work with.

• You do not have to purchase colored chocolate melts. You can buy white chocolate and color the chocolate with coloring.

• When working with chocolate, try and dip the darker color first, then a lighter color.

• If you have too much chocolate from your orange base and it forms a puddle, no worries. Allow it to dry and break off the overflow. No one will notice as you are dipping in yellow chocolate which will cover it.

• You can dip in your Graham cracker crumbs on just the bottom if you like. We went higher on this one.

• You do not have to do black-purple-orange. You can do black alone, black-purple, black-orange, purple-orange, black-green – whatever color combo you like! Some of these are three colors, some are two, and some are one color.

• You can use a fork inserted into the marshmallow to dip in chocolate or your fingers.

• Remember to allow the chocolate to dry, so you do not make finger prints in the chocolate.

• These are so stinking cute it isn’t funny. These photos truly do not do them justice. Make them; you will be glad you did!

Fresh Pine DIY Candle Directions:

• Place your candlewick in a jar allowing the wick to drop to the bottom.
• To hold the candlewick in place, wrap the top around a pencil or chopstick.
• Place the stick over the jar and let the bottom of it drop to the bottom. A weighted candlewick does this nicely and settles on its own.

• Begin by heating the soy wax flakes on low heat right on your stove top. It is best to use a nonstick pot to help avoid burning and sticking.
• Continue to stir the soy candle flakes as they slowly melt. Be sure to keep the liquid moving so it does not stick or clump.
• Add in 10 drops Pine Essential Oil OR Wintergreen Essential Oil. You may use more or less essential oils if you like.
• If you would like to color your candle can now tint the soy flakes with a crayon (any color is fine, green was used in this tutorial) or candle dye. It is vital that you DO NOT use food coloring as it will not distribute in the mixture, it will clump and not mix.

• Remove the mixture from the stove and slowly (and carefully!) pour it into the jar.
• Immediately re-center the candlewick if needed.
• Store the candle in a cool place until it sets. Do not touch it while it is setting. Let it sit for a full 3-4 hours before moving.
• Once the mixture has hardened, remove the pencil and you can snip the candlewick to shorten it.

• Light and enjoy!

Safety tip: never leave a lit candle unattended!

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor, and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils.
