Thanksgiving is just a few days away! We will be spending most of the day in the kitchen, basting the turkey and getting all the fixings ready for the big feast. Why not let the kids help in the kitchen? This month's craft is edible and the kids will LOVE it! It is gluten-free and vegan friendly too!
Flip through the images at the bottom of this post for visual instructions!
You will need an apple or pear for the turkey body, and blueberries, grapes, raspberries and mini marshmallows for the feathers. A baby carrot is perfect for the beak and raisins can be used for the eyes. You'll need toothpicks for the feathers and we chose peanut butter for our glue, but honey would work too!
First, put out all of the fruit. For every blueberry or grape used for the turkey , you'll need at least five more for immediate snacking.
Next, insert toothpicks into the apple/pear. Two toothpicks for the legs and 5-7 for the feathers..Then let the kiddos eat and assemble their turkeys. Both of my kids LOVED this craft! With the snacking and crafting it kept them busy for a solid 30 minutes!
Once their turkey is complete you can save it to use as a centerpiece at your family dinner or take a quick picture of their masterpiece and let them deconstruct it to eat. Make sure you remove the toothpicks from the turkey body before eating and be sure to supervise the little ones.
Bon Appetit & Happy Turkey Day!
