Clean and ScentsibleTrying to find a healthy treat for the kids this November? Create a turkey-themed snack plate. Use half a pear for the body, cut out cheese for the beak and legs, and then arrange bananas, grapes and strawberries to form the feathers. A pretzel border gives a nice -- and crunchy -- finishing touch.

Crisp Fall Treats
The Celebration ShoppeDress up your table with this easy-to-make creation: Make (or buy) Rice Krispies Treats and use leftover mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Starbursts from your kid’s Halloween haul. Lightly warm up the Starbursts in the microwave, softening them enough to roll and cut into feather shapes. Attach them to your Rice Krispie bar, add the peanut butter cup face with a little icing, and use sprinkle dots for the eyes and more Starburst for the wattle. Insert a lollipop stick and dessert is served!
