So yesterday Corey took the kids swimming again and I stayed in the room to make turkey heads for a little holiday treat I had planned.
We had them for a lunch snack while they waited for our turkey feast to finish cooking.
- red icing
- candy corn
- mini oreos
- Nutter Butter cookies
- chocolate chips
- graham crackers
- pretzel sticks
- regular pretzels
- white frosting
- fruits of choice (we used raspberries, blue berries, red grapes, green grapes, and bananas)
Get a nutter butter cookie - put a glob of red icing on it, stick the candy corn in that and let it dry
To help the candy corns not slide off the icing, I just propped them up on each other or a spoon handle. They dried quickly. Then I put on the mini oreo eyes by breaking off a small piece of graham cracker to hold up the front eye.
Put a bit of icing on that as glue
I had one example for the kids to see, so they could know where we were going with this.We made the turkey bodies with graham crackers, just cut off the corners to make it kinda rounded. Put a little frosting on a piece of cracker behind the head to keep it level.
This turkey was our demo and then served to Corey and his little friends Natalie and Sophi.
Next was Melodie
Joseph said his turkey was out in a snowstorm, hence his excuse for slathering it in white frosting.
