To make an apple turkey, you will need the following items. Fresh bright red apples, toothpicks, Orange construction paper, scissors, small marshmallows, candy corn, raisins and one large marshmallow. This craft is great as a nutritious snack or as a seat placing at a table.
Step One; Shine up your red apple and remove the stem.
Step Two; Use a two pointed toothpick. Place six of them at the top and to the backside of the apple.
Step Three; Place small marshmallows onto each toothpick. Do this till you reach the top of toothpicks. Place a raisin in between each small marshmallow.
Step Four; Place a toothpick at the center front of the apple and place one regular size marshmallow on it. this is the turkeys head.
Step Five; Use raisins for the eyes of the head.
Step Six; Insert a piece of candy corn for the beak (bill) of the turkey.
Step Seven; Cut out some small feet from the orange construction paper. Your apple turkey will rest on this.
An apple turkey is great for the Fall season and especially for Thanksgiving and parties during this time of the year. This is a great craft project for children to do. They go over big in a senior citizen home as well. The time limit on this project is 20 minutes at best.
