Cornucopia Favors for Thanksgiving –
An easy to make kid's craft that will add holiday sparkle to your Thanksgiving table
Miniature horns of plenty, created from sugar cones and fruit candies, make striking party favors for a Thanksgiving table.
This is a fun one for the kids to do. This also would be a good craft for a scout troop or Sunday School class. These simple Thanksgiving favors will be a hit over the holidays. And they are so easy to make!
What you need:
sugar or wafer type ice cream cones
cake decorator icing (you can buy these in a tube in the baking section)
small paper doilies
What you do:
1. For each place setting, tie a ribbon around the opening of a sugar cone.
2. 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. You can place in the fridge to harden the icing for a few minutes if needed.
3. Put a doily on a saucer for each guest. Place the cone on a doily-covered saucer.
4. Your kids can then fill it with candies, such as raspberry jellies, fruit-shaped sweets, marzipan fruits, candy corn and citrus slices.
For an inexpensive alternative, use fruit-shaped cereal. Let the goodies spill out over the opening and around the cone. When the meal is served, guests can set aside the cornucopia and save the treats until after the turkey and fixings.
