Tom the Turkey for Thanksgiving.

I saw Tom the Turkey over at the Gooseberry Patch website. He is just the cutest darn thing I had ever seen. It is the perfect activity to keep the kiddos busy while mom is preparing for the big meal. Not to mention fun for the kiddos. Mine had a blast making Tom the Turkey. We cracked up because Mackenzie's turkey had 4 legs, but he is till the cutest thing. Here is a photo and the directions.


How to Make Tom the Turkey:

To make Tom's tail feathers, set apple or pear on its side and then stick a few toothpicks into one end, as shown. Stack cereal rings on each toothpick until it's nearly full and then place a mini marshmallow on each end. Break a toothpick in half (Mom, you can snip with scissors for little ones.) and insert into apple or pear where you'd like the head to be. Press a large marshmallow onto this toothpick and press cloves in for Tom's eyes. Using another half toothpick, secure a piece of candy corn to the front of the marshmallow for Tom's beak. Insert 3 toothpicks into the bottom of the apple so Tom can stand up. Stick 2 more pieces of candy corn on the front 2 to make Tom's feet.


Thank you Joann and Vickie for a cute Thanksgiving Craft.
