No stove needed—this charming Thanksgiving “dinner” is a kid-size vision of the actual meal, easy enough for any child to make. Younger kids, make a single “serving” to use as a table decoration. Older kids, make one for each place setting, and add a name to the edge of each plate so everyone can find their seat.
