Turkey Treats

Have you seen a turkey made out of an apple?

No?

You’re really missing something, then.

This is an extremely easy treat that you can make for your grandchildren. It’s healthy — mostly, depending on which version you make. Grandchildren will love making — and eating — these little critters.

This turkey is made out of an apple and gum drops (so it’s probably the least healthy turkey treat . . .).

This turkey is a smidgeon healthier. It uses mini-marshmallows, raisins, and one candy corn (for the beak).

This turkey is my favorite. It uses pretzels, craisins, popcorn, grapes, and marshmallows. If you look really close at one of the pictures,  you’ll notice that it looks like they have Swedish fish or other gummy candies on the toothpick to make the feathers. If you have an assortment of items to put on the toothpicks, your grandchildren could really have a fun time making fun color/food combinations.

You could have your grandchildren make a couple of these for a table centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner. Then, you’ve killed two birds with one stone: you’ve occupied your grandchildren and got a centerpiece that someone else made (which saves you time)!

Have a happy time creating fabulously fun turkeys.
