The Kids Are In the Kitchen…

These easy fall treats are so much fun to make with the kids! There was no school for the kiddos today so we took advantage and did some fun stuff.  Although the kids could have helped make the rice krispies squares, I did that ahead of time. Then I cut the rice krispies squares into rectangles for the turkeys and then triangles as we did candy corn ones too(these were perfect for the real young kids). So much fun and not a lot of materials needed!
