At our house we don't even eat turkey on Thanksgiving anymore! But we always have these cute little turkeys at every place.  They usually have our place cards leaning up against their little apple bodies.

In our family it is always the children's job to help set the table...this is every day, not just holidays!  But on special occasions their job is expanded to include the creation of place cards, or folding napkins in a fancy way or making these cute little turkeys!

All you need is as many apples as you have guests, a box of long tooth pics or skewers cut in half, a bag of large and small gum drops (for the tail feathers and feet) , a bag of large marshmallows (for the head), mini chocolate chips (for the eyes) and a little piece of licorice or a tube of piping icing to make the turkey's "snood" (yes that wobbly thing on their beaks has a name!)

Enjoy XO  Martha
