Little Hands that Cook with Books: Turkey Casserole

Do you have some leftover turkey?  Here's a great recipe for your little one to make all by themselves! 

It’s turkey time at cooking class! The girls have been learning to many skills in the past 8 weeks that they were ready to create a dish all by themselves! 

Before we started cooking we read this adorable book, The Littlest Pilgrim by Brandi Dougherty.  A story about a Little Pilgrim girl who wants to help everyone in her tiny village but everyone is either too busy to hear her or thinks she’s not big enough.  At the end she finds the one skill she’s good at, making a friend.  We talked about the things that they are able to help with in the kitchen now and how they were going to make dinner tonight all by themselves. 
 To Make Turkey Casserole it’s super easy and kid friendly.  Here’s the recipe.
  Once they finished their casseroles we cleaned up and it was time for Pilgrims while our dishes baked. 

We made a Pilgrim inspired from Here.  The girls traced their own pieces and cut them out on their own.  Once they attached all the pieces they wrote in the middle what they were thankful for. I love how the all ended up so different from each other. 

I am very thankful for my cooking Pilgrims, it's been so much fun getting to know them.  Hope your family had a great Thanksgiving.
