Scripture to Live By:
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness:come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;and his truth endureth to all generations.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to add my own touch to make them Thanksgiving Pumpkins. I want to use them as favors for our Thanksgiving Dinner.
6 cups rice crispies cereal
1 10 ounce package of marshmallows
3 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
1 teaspoon Wilton orange paste coloring
Miniature Tootsie Rolls
Green frosting for the leaves
Put marshmallows and butter is a microwave safe bowl and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave oven and stir. Put back in Microwave and cook 1 minute longer.
Remove from oven and stir in 1 teaspoon of Wilton orange paste coloring.
Pour mixture over the 6 cups of rice crispies. Mix until all the cereal is coated well.
Let the cereal cool a little before trying to form into pumpkins or they will not hold together.
Form into 12 pumpkins.(If making a double batch make into 24 pumpkins)
I used canned frosting and colored it green to make a leaf on each one.
I made some thanks giving stickers to go on the pumpkins.
Use mini tootsie rolls as the stem.
Using a decorating bag with a leaf tube, fill with green frosting and put a leaf attached to the stem.
Next, I printed off some stickers with the words "Give Thanks" on them and ran them through my Oxyron machine to add the adhesive to the back of them.
I then cut them out in circles.
I placed a sticker in the center of each pumpkin.
I plan to use them for several occasions. I plan to use them for our children in Awana as a treat.
I also plan to use them in our Kingdom Kids ministry as I do a lesson on Thanksgiving.
I also plan to use them as favors to go at each place setting for Thanksgiving dinner.
They would also make a good gift for friends or neighbors to just let them know your are thankful for them.
My grandchildren enjoyed making them with me.
I am sure your children will enjoy not only making them, but also making them with you.
So easy to make and tasty to eat.
