Wow! Here’s a great craft that you can eat. You can make one for each person at your Thanksgiving table—just think of it as a healthy dessert!
What you Need
- An apple
- A pear (yellow reddish or brown pears might look good, but any kind will do! A green turkey? Why not?)
- A clementine or navel orange
- a dried cranberry (for a gobble)
- a couple of cloves (or small raisin pieces) for eyes
- a dried apricot (for feet)
- tiny dab of peanut butter (to keep things in place)
- a whole cashew nut (or almond)
What you do
- Core apple and cut into thin slices (for the wing feathers)
- Cut pear in half and core (for the body)
- Peel clementine or navel orange and detach sections (for the wing feathers)
- Arrange apple and clementine (or orange) sections on a plate in a fan shape.
- Place the cored pear-half on top.
- Cut the dried apricot in half and cut wedges into it (these are your turkey claws)
- Tuck the “claws” under the pear
- Use very small dabs of peanut butter to attach the nut-beak, and the cranberry-gobble
- Push cloves into pear for eyes
