These Thanksgiving turkey treats are so easy to make and are perfect for the kids’ table at Thanksgiving {or the adult table too!}.  We ended up making 25 of these little guys for Matthew’s class at school.  They actually go together really quickly and I think they SO cute!

Materials
  • tulle {I found some 9″ round tulle circles at the dollar store which worked perfectly!}
  • Reese’s Pieces or M&Ms in fall colors
  • pipe cleaners {yellow, orange, brown, and red}
  • google eyes
  • glue {I used Quick Grip}
  • small clear hair elastics {also much cheaper at the dollar store!}

  • Place your candies in the middle of the tulle circles and secure closed with the elastic bands.  Leave enough excess tulle to form the “feathers” in the back.
  • To form the head, cut the brown pipe cleaner to approximately 6 inches.  Roll up the pipe cleaner leaving about 2 inches at the end.
  • Cut a piece of the orange pipe cleaner to form the beak {just over 1 inch} and wrap it around the outer coil of the brown pipe cleaner.

  • Cut a red piece of pipe cleaner for the wattle and glue google eyes on either side of the beak.
  • For the feet, cut a yellow pipe cleaner to approximately 8 inches and fold the end into three toes.  Check the video if you’re having troubles with this step.
