Cornucopia Activity for Kids

Looking for a fun and easy activity to make up with the kids? You have certainly found it right here. This Cornucopia activity for kids is perfect for your Thanksgiving gift giving or table place setting. It would also be a cute treat to give out to the trick or treaters on Halloween (to the kids that know you of course, or it might just get thrown away these days 🙁 ) The teens and I made these a few years ago for my co-workers, and they were a huge hit. Even the teens had fun putting them together and giving them away.

Dampen a paper towel and squeeze out most of the water. fold it in half and put it on your microwave safe plate. cover the bottom point of the ice cream cone only with the wet paper towel. I did 2 at a time to speed up the process.  Microwave 20 – 30 seconds depending on the power of your microwave.

When you take it out of the microwave BE CAREFUL !! It will be hot!
Working QUICKLY, use your skewer to guide the point into a curl. Hold for 5 seconds just so it can set.

Once you have enough of the goodies to fill the cone, place the filled cone into the plastic baggie so it’s snug against the edge. Twist the baggie and secure with a ribbon.
