How To Make Your Own Turkey Apple Treats

Everywhere you look it seems like Christmas is on display.  Retailers are in a hurry to get people in the mood to shop for Christmas.  However, unlike those who jump from Halloween to Christmas I enjoy celebrating each holiday as they come along.  Thanksgiving is such a wonderful, although often overlooked holiday.  This special holiday focuses on family, gratitude, and of course lots of yummy food!

Last weekend the boys and I had so much fun making our very own turkey apple treats.  KC redecorated his turkey several times rearranging the color pattern of his feathers (aka the Fruit Loops) before he decided it was good enough to eat.  AJ being a little younger needed a tad bit more help with his turkey, that however was mostly to keep him from eating all the ingredients before we completed the craft.  The kids weren’t the only ones having fun making these turkey apples.  Heith and I made a few great memories as we helped the boys along the way.

How To Make Your Apple Turkeys:

Use your toothpicks to make the tail by pushing  of them into the back to the apple, we did five toothpicks on each apple which I think worked out well. Push your ingredients onto the toothpicks.

Make a face by cutting one toothpick in half.  Push each half into your apple then use your mini marshmallows to make the eyes.  To finish the face create a beak and a waddle using your ingredients.

If your apple wants to roll you can easily create feet with two or more toothpicks and then pushing either popcorn or another one of your ingredients onto it.

    1. Thanks Jane! They were so fun to make and the boys had a great time. I agree that it is ashame that such an important holiday is virtually ignored when it gives the opportunities to families to see their loved ones again.
