Carrot and Pumpkin Turkey Snack

A simple holiday side dish recipe that picky eaters will gobble gobble! down

How kids can help:

Assemble the turkey on plates.

What you need:

  • Pumpkin bread/ muffin
  • Carrots
  • Seedless red grapes
  • Seedless green grapes
  • Slice of apple—eyes & wattle

Cut a round slice of pumpkin bread or a pumpkin muffin for the turkey body. Wash and peel carrots, then cut lengthwise slices. Cut feathers and legs from these slices. Cut the end from a red grape and use large piece for head. Cut "wattle" from a thin apple slice and, using a small straw, cut out two little eyes. Moistness of apple will make eyes stick to the turkey's head. Arrange on plate.

Helpful Note

Swap out the carrots for apple slices or any other favorite vegetable.
