For my family, Thanksgiving has always been the biggest holiday. It's usually 2-3 days of cooking and extended family. Over the past few years, my cousin has introduced the cutest Reese's cup turkeys as a favor for each person's plate. Now that I have children, this has become a fun "craft" that they can participate in on our busy Thursday. I would suggest this for children aged two and a half to three years. My son Richie absolutely loves it, but please remember your patience. It's candy! No you can't eat it now, you have to wait! Not the easiest thing for a two or three year old to understand, but if you're patient they'll get it.
