9 Fall and Thanksgiving Pumpkin Recipes For kids

Fall and Thanksgiving Recipes-final

It’s squash season…and that means pumpkin reigns supreme! We love pumpkin because it’s a healthy ingredient that plays well with kid-friendly recipes. And we love these fall and Thanksgiving pumpkin recipes for kids because they take advantage of the season’s favorite ingredient, with easy steps kids can help with. They’re great for Thanksgiving Day snacking or all November long.


Mini Pumpkin Pies w/ Press-In Crust


It’s super easy (and super fun) for kids to make their own pies. A fun, sensory activity– like playing with play dough, only with edible results!


No-Bake Pumpkin Cookies


A community favorite, these tasty, tiny no-bake treats are perfect for kids to prepare and enjoy.


Pumpkin Cookies


We love a kitchen filled with the scent of freshly baked cookies. This pumpkin cookie recipe is perfect for small bakers since there are only three ingredients.


Pumpkin Smoothie


After researching different ways to make smoothies, we settled on one that has only four healthy ingredients. This pumpkin smoothie is definitely a community favorite.


Pumpkin Bread


The delicious aroma of cinnamon and spices wafting in the air reminds us of autumn, cool weather, and getting cozy at home with fun books and tasty snacks!


Caramelized Pumpkin Seeds


Pumpkin carving season is over, but maybe you still have some uncarved pumpkins sitting on your front porch, or are inspired to cook with some of those beautiful squashes while they’re still in the market. In any case, this is great way to make a tasty snack with the season’s harvest.


Pumpkin Waffles


Mornings are always a rush; this is a great make-ahead meal you can store in the refrigerator or freezer and simply pop in the toaster oven for a quick breakfast treat.


Whipped Pumpkin Fruit Dip


This whipped pumpkin dip is great for getting fruit (and pumpkin!) into picky kids. A great addition to a holiday fruit platter.


Pumpkin Bars


The smell of pumpkin baking in the kitchen reminds us of fall, but we love to make and eat these pumpkin bars all through the year!
