Gobble Gobble up some Turkey Fruit!


We made this fun Fruit Turkey the other day and my boys just loved it! We used 1 green apple, pineapple, manderin oranges, green grapes, dark grapes, edible eyes, 1 cherry, and tooth picks.

We cut the botton off of our apple so it would stand up staight. Save the cut off part to make the wings and head.


We poked 4 tooth picks on the back side of the apple. We cut off pieces of the manderin oranges and pineapple. We added our dark grapes first. Then we added the oranges, green grapes, and pineapple.


We cut out a head and wings with the saved apple slice that we cut off the bottom. We poked a tooth pick in the front towards the top and attached the cut out apple for the head. Attach the eyes, orange nose, and wings with peanut butter. We cut a piece of a cherry for the waddle (you could use a strawberry or fruit roll up). We cut the end of a manderin orange for the feet.

Here is the side view...


We had a blast making this silly Turkey and it's a great way to get the kids to eat lots of fruit!!
