While you are cooking and getting ready for Thanksgiving you need something to keep the kids busy. Turn off those screens and hand them the gingerbread turkey trot cookie decorating kit, which includes four turkey shaped cookies to decorate, pre-made icing, colored candy beads and sprinkles.

We used one of these kits at a recent celebration (when it was one large cookie to assemble — the four smaller cookies look more manageable), and while their creation didn’t look exactly like the box, it kept kids busy and entertained.
