Easy Cookies & Candy Turkey Craft

Easy Turkey Craft Using Store-bought Cookies and Candies!
We're only two weeks out from Thanksgiving, and I have so much to thank God for! My family (including our sweet fifteen week old addition!),  my salvation, a wonderful home church and so much more.

There is no doubt God is better to me than I deserve. 
My prayer is that you all have a wonderfully blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!

This sweet and easy turkey craft would make a fun table favor for your holiday get-togethers.
A simple cello bag tied up with festive ribbon will do the trick. 
Your guests will gobble them up!

For more turkey crafts, I made these turkey lollipops last year plus these stuffed marshmallow turkeys!

I am joining Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons Crafty Friday Link Party for the first time! 

Pop on over to see all the awesome craftiness! 
*edit* One of my readers suggested that the candy feathers would also look good attached to the front of the cookie. I told her I thought she was right.
Well..kudos to her because I tried it here and I LOVE it!
Thank you Tavette!
I also flipped the peppermint patty to the textured side. Win!
All these ingredients should be easy to come by with the exception of the triangle sprinkles. I bought mine at Wal-mart. If you can't find them, here is a link to purchase them.

You could also substitute another candy..candy corn, m&m, etc.
Melt a few chocolate chips just enough to soften them. 
If you get them too hot, it will just take that much longer to set.

Spread the chocolate onto the top, striped side of the cookie.
Place the Mike & Ike "turkey feather" candies and let set till completely hardened. 
Use the melted chocolate chips as a "glue" to attach all the remaining candy pieces.
And just like that, your turkey craft is done!

How much fun will the kiddos have putting these together!?

Wishing You All a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving From

Airheads Surprise Inside Stuffed Turkey Marshmallows!

When Airheads asked me to make a craft for November, I said Yes & Yes!

My daughter told me I needed to make something "turkey". I agreed, but what kind of turkey..? Thinking..then it hit me..yes..stuff a turkey..a marshmallow turkey..with Airheads Bites!

I was inspired by these apple cookies and these marshmallows!

These are such a fun treat to make with your little

Check out Airheads on Facebook and Pinterest for some awesome craftiness!
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble...
These fruit flavored Airheads Bites are yum-o any way you spell it!
Ingredients needed for Stuffed Turkeys.
~Airheads Bars & Bites
~Campfire giant roasters marshmallows
~Ready-made frosting (chocolate wins over vanilla as the color matches the sprinkles)
~Candy eyes
~Chocolate sprinkles
~triangle candy sprinkles
~ready-made fondant

I used the middle size from these fondant leaf cutters.
 Airheads are nice and soft, so to make sure your feathers don't wilt, you can use fondant or gumpaste as a sturdier backing for your candy. Either one can be purchased ready-made.
Ohhh, how cute are these little Airheads turkey feet.
So easy, simple and sweet!
You can use any chocolate sprinkles to cover your marshmallows.
I used these.
Before we carve this turkey, he needs to be assembled.
I just rolled a small red piece of the candy between my fingers to fashion the turkey's snood. Thank you google!
Airheads do not care for the heat, so keep these in a cool, dry environment until you're ready to serve them.
We wish you an Airheads filled Thanksgiving!
Thank You Airheads!
