Elliot made a cute apple turkey at a fall festival recently. It was made using a red apple, fruit loops and marshmallows. I loved how easy it was and knew a Bosc pear would work even better! What do you think of my Thanksgiving turkey pear craft?
Because there are always plenty of desserts on Thanksgiving, I wanted to make the Turkey Pear a little healthier. We ditched the marshmallows and used Cheerios instead of fruit loops.
Turkey Pear Craft
We used multigrain Cheerios to give the turkey “feathers” a little color without being bright. A couple of raisin eyes and a small orange peel for a nose and you have yourself a healthier turkey pear craft!
Or if your kids are silly “turkeys” themselves, they might opt to create crazy creations instead of turkey pears… 🙂 In any event, a healthy and fun activity to keep kids busy on Thanksgiving day!
