mr. turkey

I have made this turkey many times over the years!  Our school has a very strict policy on snacks and party food and there is very little that you can bring in.  I was looking for an idea years ago and came across this turkey made out of fruit in Family Fun magazine.  He is so cute and easy and the kids LOVE it!

His body is a melon.  His head is a pear.  His eyes are raisins.  You can use a carrot or a piece of cheese for his beak.  I usually add red and green feathers but with the piles of jewelry orders coming in, I just didn't have the time.  For the skewers, I used strawberries and grapes but you can add cheese, pineapple, really anything.  Oh, and his little feet are red peppers.  How cute is he?  Enjoy!

Hi Christine!

He is ADORABLE! I love it! And so would my girls because they eat so many strawberries and grapes. Thanks for sharing him with me!

Have a great Thanksgiving! :)
