November is a month of Turkeys crafts; paper turkeys, yarn turkeys, clay pot turkeys; turkeys made out of anything and everything. Best of all are the turkeys you can eat, the one for Thanksgiving Dinner and this one that is full of healthy stuff.
1/4 cup Fruit Loops cereal or raisins (if using Fruit Loops you will need a few raisins for the neck)
6-7 mini marshmallows
1 green olive
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.
