Edible Apple Turkey Craft - Kid Friendly

I almost forgot!

I helped a bunch of kids, about 8 or 9 of them, make these fun 'turkeys' at a Thanksgiving gathering last year at the home of friends-like-family. The ages ranged from probably 3 to 10.  It was simple fun and all the adults enjoyed the results too. Cute! Cute!

Lots of options - you can use raisins for eyes, or edible creative. 
I had some edible 'eyes' on hand, so that's what we used..using a dab of honey to 'glue' them on. 

We cut a gumdrop in half for the 'waddle', then shaped it into a longer shape...
attached it to the marshmallow with honey or part of a toothpick...

This is what you need for each turkey...

1 medium apple 
spice drops 
(they're smaller than regular ones) 
lg. marshmallow
eyes - raisins, edible markers or store purchased 'eyes' 

Place 3 spice drops on a toothpick, leaving room at the bottom to poke it into the apple.  Make as many 'feathers' as you'd like.

Add 2 toothpick legs (it helps steady the bird=) and add a spice drop to each for feet. 

Push half a toothpick into the apple where you want to put the 'head'; push marshmallow into pick.  Add eyes and 'waddle'.  May use candy corn for a beak. 

Use your imagination.  These are fun and will produce lots of giggles,
from all ages.
