Food Art: Thanksgiving Turkey Snack

This cute little turkey food art snack is perfect for kids to enjoy this Thanksgiving season. It’s really easy to assemble and full of kid-approved foods.



What you’ll need



1 large whole-wheat cracker

1 small whole-wheat cracker

5 slices of banana

1 slice of naval orange, sliced in half

1 strawberry

1 baby carrot

2 black currants


a sharp kitchen knife (be sure to supervise your kids if you let them slice)


How to Make It


1. Place your crackers on a plate, placing the smaller cracker on top of the larger.  Place your 5 banana slices around the top curve of the cracker.

2. Take your 2 naval orange halves and place them on top of the banana slices on your plate.

3. Using your knife, slice the top off your strawberry (don’t discard it, save it for later!) and slice your strawberry into 5 thin slices.  Place these strawberry slices on your turkey in between the banana and orange slices.

4. Finally, you’ll want to add on the details.  Take your scrap strawberry top and slice a very small piece off the side.  Slice your baby carrot into a triangle for the nose and 2 circles with 2 small triangles cut out of each circle for the feet.  Grab the 2 small black currants for the eyes.  Place these details on your turkey snack and you’re done!
