These are really cute turkeys made out of apples that kids can make for school or just eat as a snack. They also make adorable Holiday Table decorations. They can be made with either Fruit Loops or raisins. Variations: head can be a cut out that is glued on or a large marshmallow with raisin eyes and a candy corn stuck into it for a beak.
To make the feathers: Take raisins or Fruit Loops and slide onto toothpicks about 3/4 the way down. Place a mini-marshmallow on the end. You will need 6 or 7 "feathers" depending on the size of your apple. Stick the "feathers" into the back of the apple.
To make the head: Slide raisins down toothpick and top with a green olive (head). Use cloves for eyes. If your olive has a pimiento you can pull it out the back of the olive and let it hang so that it looks like a turkey wattle.
Insert three toothpicks under the turkey so it can stand freely.

* Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with Thanksgiving.
2 cups Bugles brand corn snacks - shaped as a cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
2 cups pretzels - represent arms folded in thanks and prayer.
1 cup candy corn - during the first winter, the Pilgrims were each alloted only 5 kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce.
1 cup dried or candy fruits - Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
1 cup peanuts or sunflower seeds - seeds represent the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.
