I came across so many cute
Thanksgiving edible turkey crafts
this year but I really wanted to
choose one that the girls could make.
So we decided to make Gumdrop Turkeys!
I saw the idea on Pinterest but
like always I improvised
with what I had and substituted a
few suggested ingredients!
We used fruit slices for the bodies,
spice drops for the wings & face,
nerds for eyes & nose,
slithers of gummy worms for the beard
and icing to hold everything together!
They were a bit more difficult than I expected
so I am glad Ellie and Haley were there to help!
The girl's 1st Turkeys!
They had fun making the 1st few
but of course soon got bored and
wanted to eat all the turkey parts!
A few of the turkeys became
Princess Turkeys with crowns!
We had to lay the turkey's on
their backs so they would dry.
I think our Gumdrop Turkeys
turned out pretty cute!
Our turkeys are now ready
to travel to Leroy
tomorrow to share with the cousins!
