Thanksgiving Food Fun

Yes, it's November already and tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Some of us live in areas that already got their first snowfall while others are basking in the toasty, sunny rays of the South. Regardless of where you are, there is one thing that we all have in common- Thanksgiving means having empty time on your hands and not knowing what to fill that space with. Especially when younger children are involved or visiting relatives that need an easy way to pass the time and bond, it can be challenging.

I stumbled across this adorable, allergy-friendly pastime shared by Gimbal's Fine Candies. I love the simplicity of it and the fact that it's something that will end in being able to nosh while you create. Let's face it, we all love to eat and Thanksgiving is all about having those treats that we normally don't allow ourselves to eat too much of during the rest of the year. This food activity hits on all of the parental must-have's for holiday sharing amusement.

  • It uses Gimbal's Fine Candies so the fear of cross contamination is not a concern
  • It allows time with anyone of all ages
  • It refocuses us away from our now typical routine of using electronics
  • It's simple- parents always like simple
  • It includes food which makes all of us happy
I'm happy to share the easy instructions!

Gimbal's Fine Candies Thanksgiving Tree

Materials Needed:
White construction paper
Brown, red, orange & yellow acrylic paint
Glue or glue dots

  1. Using a piece of white construction paper, start painting the base of the tree using the brown acrylic paint (Be sure to paint the top of the tree with branches to put the jelly beans on).
  2. Once the tree is complete, use the red, orange and yellow paint to fill in the branches with fall leaves (this will provide a nice base for the jelly beans).
  3. One by one, use glue or glue dots to paste Gimbal's Gourmet Jelly Beans onto the tree
  4. Once complete, hang the tree in your favorite spot to be enjoyed by all during Thanksgiving or frame it with a date to keep the memory for years to come.
*As always, everyone's allergies are different. Always read labels to ensure that this would be a safe item for your allergy needs. Visit Gimbal's Fine Candies for complete product information.
