I always loved watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving as a child.
And, I think it’s even more fun when you get to introduce your kids to the cartoons that you loved during childhood and watch them develop a fondness for them also.
Now, my kid is OBSESSED with Charlie Brown (especially Linus because he carries a nighty, but she loves all the characters).
For some reason, I love the part where they made the popcorn in A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and it’s one of those things that always stuck with me.
(Remember Snoopy with his little chef’s hat and how mad Peppermint Patty got when she realized that they weren’t having a real Thanksgiving meal?)
It was because of that Thanksgiving popcorn scene that I thought, Wouldn’t it be fun to watch the cartoon and eat the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving meal with my kid?
(I mean, what kid doesn’t love to have weird, mismatched treats for lunch while watching cartoons?)
So, a couple of years ago we hosted our own little Peanuts party and it was a HUGE hit.
The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving food is really simple to put together (we’re not talking a turkey here, people) and is great for all ages.
This is a fun (and SUPER EASY) party that you can have for homeschool co-op or a homeschool meet-up, too!
