When I saw these fun Thanksgiving cookies ideas, I knew I had to make them with my granddaughters. And we did. These are super-simple to make. Even preschoolers can make them. Not only did we enjoy these teepee Thanksgiving snacks, we loved making our Oreo turkey cookies again.

If you have young kids, you’ll need to help a little. If your kids are older, they can make them completely by themselves, as long as they have all the supplies.

Here’s what we did.

  1. I broke off the end of a sugar cone and spread chocolate icing around the bottom of the cone. We used “out of the can” store brand fudge frosting. Nothing special.
  2. The girls rolled their cone in the sprinkles of choice. We had orange sugar and multi-color sprinkles in the pantry, so that’s what we used. You could probably find fall-colored sprinkles, also.
  3. I spread frosting over broken end of the sugar cone.
  4. The girls rolled that end of the sugar cone in sprinkles, also.
  5. I dipped super-thin pretzels in the frosting and added to the broken end of the cone to make the teepee poles. This was part was too much fine motor skills for 2 and 5 year olds.

If I were using this in my homeschool, I would integrate these teepee sugar cone cookies with our study of Thanksgiving. A few activities might include:

  • Read Tapenum’s Day with my kids.
  • Have my kids narrate the story back to me.
  • Older kids can write their narration.
  • Younger kids can copy sections of the story.
  • Find story places on a map.
  • Make Indian teepee sugar cone cookies.
  • Eat your cookies. Yummy!

Our Thanksgiving family tradition is to make the Oreo turkey cookies every year at Thanksgiving. My grown kids were asking this week if I had ingredients for Oreo turkey cookies. Everyone loves making them, no matter how old they are.

All you need for these cute Thanksgiving cookies are Oreos, red hots, malt balls, chocolate icing, and candy corn.

  • Open oreo and set each side perpendicular (use icing to hold in place)
  • Frost the oreo that is standing up & down with chocolate icing
  • Place malt ball at the right angle, inside the two cookies.
  • Add a red hot (gobble) in front of the malt ball.
  • Fan candy corn around the maltball to make a fan of feathers.
  • Eat and enjoy – yummy!!!
