Edible Turkey

Simple, but cute, this edible turkey craft is sure to please the turkey enthusiasts as we celebrate Thanksgiving.


Edible Turkey


  1. Take one Oreo cookie and open it up. Note: vanilla cream cookies may also be used if you prefer.

  2. Set the side with the cream center intact, cream side up on a plate.

  3. Affix another Oreo cookie to the top, back of the opened cookie by pressing it into the cream.

  4. Place a granola bite or whopper in front of the whole Oreo cookie to make the head.

  5. Place candy corn pieces sticking in the cream portion of the whole Oreo cookie to make the feathers.

  6. Cut a triangle out of a piece of candy corn to make a beak and place at an angle in front of the "head".

  7. Make a whole plate of these, but hide them or they will get gobbled up fast!

They do look great. I'm going to try this with my grandkids tomorrow (Thanksgiving Day!). There are 3 two years olds and 2 four year olds, so they will love this.

What a cute picture, Daina. It's a nice touch to send that with your comment.
