Thanksgiving has come and gone and though most of my readers are focused on another a holiday in the midst of Black Friday frenzy, I wanted to share an edible turkey craft that I made with my seven year old’s class while Thanksgiving is still fresh on the brain digesting. You will want to bookmark, pin and file away this edible turkey craft idea for next Thanksgiving.
After Halloween, I bought several bags of candy corn on clearance with the specific purpose to make some kind of edible craft with my kids. Funny enough, as one of the homeroom moms, I was in charge of a craft for our Thanksgiving feast.
With a quick Google search, I tried to remember how to make an edible turkey with Oreo cookies, however, the Oreo turkeys I found weren’t exactly what I wanted. So, I decided to combine a few of the ideas I found and I came up with this.
Of course, the kids gobbled up the fun.
Turkey Cookie Craft
Golden Double Stuff Oreos
Nutter Butter Bites
Harvest Mix Candy Corn
1 tub of white icing
1 tube black decorating icing gel
1 tube red decorating icing gel
Gently add the turkey’s tail feathers by wedging in the four brown-colored candy corn into the Oreo middle between the two cookies. (You could also gently remove the top cookie.)
For the turkey’s legs, snap one pretzel stick in half and gently add the sticks into the opposite end of the candy corn. (If you pulled off top of the Oreo, add a small amount icing and reapply the cookie.)
Add a small amount of icing to backside of a Nutter Butter Bite and “glue” the cookie to Oreo. Add a small amount of icing to a yellow candy corn and “glue” it to the mini Nutter Butter.
Using the black decorating icing gel, add two eyes. Then, add a wattle using the red decorating icing gel.
Thanks for joining our weekly Friday Food Fight! Can’t wait to see what everyone is flinging this week!
