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.
Apple Turkey Craft
Supplies needed your Turkey Apple Treat:
One large whole apple for each child. Any variety washed and dried.
Raisins or Craisins
Anything else you would like to decorate your Apple Turkey treat with including candy corn, Cheerios or Goldfish Crackers
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.
Over the next couple of weeks I have a lot of fun ways to help you enjoy this important holiday and it all starts with Turkey Apple Treats!
