The Chirping Moms: Kid's Thanksgiving Activity: A Turkey Snack

November 3, 2012

Kid's Thanksgiving Activity: A Turkey Snack

This week, we kicked off November, with a fun Thanksgiving Turkey snack. This is a fun project for kids & then makes a healthy snack! Typically Maggie & I do projects like this when Alex naps. This time, I had made a sample turkey ahead of time & Alex sat the entire time pulling apart & eating the turkey. Both girls had a blast with this project!
Candy corn
Peanut butter (if your kids have peanut allergies, use icing or a butter spread)

Place the toothpicks in the apple across the top to make the "feathers".
Use peanut butter to stick cheerios on for eyes & the candy corn on.
Stick raisins onto the toothpicks. 

We'll be linking up with I Love You More Than Carrots for this week's "Hey That's Pin-tastic". Be sure to head over Monday & check out all of the great pins.
