Pumpkin Pie...Preschool Style

Bug's class had their Thanksgiving feast this week and everyone in the class was asked to bring a dish. We were chosen to bring Pumpkin Pie!

As I looked down the list of food items, I noticed that everyone was being asked to bring finger foods, like turkey slices rolled up, grapes and cheese cubes. I wanted to figure out a way to make Pumpkin Pie more 4 year old friendly. That's when I remembered these...
I bought a mega sized package of these at Party City, so that "Bug" could take ranch in her lunch. (Yes, I had to ask the 20 something guy for the jello shot containers, before he could figure out what I was looking for...giggle! )

Lined those little dip cups up....

Grabbed the melon baller and dipped out a portion for each of our lil preschool friends...

Quick visit with my computer and pumpkin pie becomes pumpkin pie dip!

Put our Pumpkin Pie Dip in baggies with a few Scooby Doo Graham Cracker Sticks. I'm thinking that's how the pilgrims ate theirs, right?

The teachers were thrilled and said it's the first time they had an entire class eat pumpkin pie. We will SO be serving Pumpkin Pie Dip at our Thanksgiving Feast!
Have a blessed holiday!!

Head on over here for more fun!


  1. Awesome idea! And now I know where to get those little containers for ranch dressing for my son's lunch!

  2. I LOVE this idea. I bet my kids would even eat it like this!
