This is a fun classic craft, perfect for Thanksgiving Day. These Turkey Apples can be “gobbled” up as a snack while they wait for the turkey to be done or saved as part of Thanksgiving dinner.
Supplies for Turkey Apples:
- whole apples, any color, washed and dried
- stick pretzels
- raisins, craisins
Set out your supplies. Use your toothpicks to attach some of them together in a line. Then press them into the back part of the apple. We also tried to make some turkey faces. I used chocolate kisses for one and a craisin on a toothpick for another, making the waddle. You could use a grape or olive too.
Now these turkeys are ready for Gobbling!! Have fun with Turkey Dinner!

I absolutely love these! I have been looking for a Thanksgiving craft that works with my 1 1/2 year old. If not making them, I’m sure he’ll love eating these turkeys!
These are fantastic. I totally want to make them for the kids for Thanksgiving.
Thanks for this fun idea! We just did it with my son’s preschool class and they had a blast.
These are really cute. I think we are going to make them with a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Theme complete with jelly beans, popcorn and pretzels.
These are so cute!

These are really cute. We do a large fruit turkey every year (Family Fun), but I am going to do this for my daughters school fall party.
Very cool! I’ve never cored a turkey before so this will be a first for me. Love the idea and I’m sure our 8-year old will love it as well. I like the idea as placeholders too even though I’m going to be all alone this Thanksgiving. Sigh.
Oh these are fun. What a cute idea to set at each place for Thanksgiving.
I’m making something similar w/ my preschoolers for Thanksgiving, using a potato (for the brown color, obviously not to eat like this one)…you can use golf tees for legs so it stands up! They would make great table decorations at T-giving :)
Too cute… and delicious looking!
You know what I love the most about these, besides the fact that they’re adorable? Healthy snacks. HEALTHY.
Such a cute idea. Totally doing this over the holiday. Thanks!
My Mom let us make these YEARS ago for my 1st friend birthday party (I was 6 yrs. old), since my b-day is always around Thanksgiving (this year it’s ON Thanksgiving). The main thing she did differently was used a caramel apple to start with, which we all thought was delicious! My son’s 6th birthday is on the 30th and I just told him he could have all his little kindergarten buddies for a party this year…we may have to do this for them! Thanks for bringing back fond memories for me, Marie!
Super cute. Laurel will totally love this project! Will try it this weekend! -Christine
too cute! my “pea” will love them!
