Cooking and crafts can go hand-in-hand for the holidays with children. Both cooking and making a craft project can help children practice their creative skills. Favorite books can inspire both recipes and craft projects.
"Gracias, the Thanksgiving Turkey" by Joy Cowley is a great choice to read and create a recipe for turkey snack wraps.
*Small pita pockets or small tortilla wraps
*1 tablespoon non-fat mayonnaise for each snack wrap
*1 slice of cheese (offer several kinds)
*Thin-sliced turkey breast
*3/4 avocado for dicing
*Diced tomato pieces
