Thanksgiving Turkey Treats

Happy Thanksgiving! This is my favorite holiday, and I'm so excited to have a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and visit with all my family -- many of whom I don't see very often.

Check out these turkey snacks I made for the boys' daycare earlier this month. Aren't they cute? You probably already have most of these things on hand, so if you're having children over today, this would be a fun project for them to do while they're waiting for dinner. The kids absolutely loved them!

From my family to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Chocolate graham crackers
Vanilla wafer cookies
Vanilla frosting
Yellow food coloring
Candy corn
Black decorating gel
Pretzel sticks

1. Tint the frosting with a few drops of yellow food coloring. Spread a small amount on the inside of a graham cracker. Alternate adding pretzel sticks and Twizzlers for the feathers. Top with another graham cracker smeared with frosting.

2. For the face, smear the back of a vanilla wafer with frosting and stick it onto the graham cracker. Use candy corn for the beaks and black decorating gel for the eyes.
