Thanksgiving healthy snack for Kids
My daughter and I had so much fun making healthy Halloween snacks that we thought we’d better create one for Thanksgiving too. We ended up creating this darling fruit turkey with fun big eyes and colorful feathers. It is a great snack to make with your little ones for a Thanksgiving festivity. My 5 year old had so much fun and feasting on it afterwards was a great treat.
I really didn’t have to help much- just a little with applying the peanut butter.
Makes 4 Turkeys
1 large apple, cored and sliced in half, and then slice in half again horizontally
1/2 orange, peeled, separated into slices, and then cut the slices into small chunks.
few grapes, raisins, or apple bites
1 graham cracker sheet, broken into 4 pieces
nutella spread, thick peanut butter, or cream cheese
12 tooth picks
1- TURKEY HEAD- to make the face, we used a graham cracker for the head, squished mini marshmallows and raisins for the eyes, orange slice for the beak, and a piece of apple skin for the waddle. Glue everything onto the graham cracker with peanut butter.
Attach the graham cracker turkey head to the apple with another dab of peanut butter.
2- FEATHERS- Poke 4 toothpicks into the back of the apple. Slide fruit bites onto the toothpicks. That’s it! Enjoy!
*You can use whipped cream cheese for the eyes instead of marshmallows to make it with less sugar.
