Looking for a delicious Thanksgiving snack that is a little less labor-intensive than an entire Thanksgiving day feast? Kids are sure to gobble up these apple turkeys!
Caution: As always, please be aware of allergies in your classroom. Check to see if any children have allergies to peanut butter. If they do, use marshmallow cream instead and mini marshmallows instead of peanuts. And don’t serve this snack to children 3 and under.

Thanksgiving Snack: Apple Turkeys
First, give each child an apple. Then help children core the apple. Then have the kids mix together peanut butter and honey.
Kids can fill their apple with the peanut butter mixture, leaving a circle of peanut butter on the top. Then have children use peanuts to create tail feathers around one half of the turkey. Lastly, have children add a chocolate bon-bon for the turkey’s head, and enjoy eating their yummy snack.
