Here's a surefire way to keep little ones busy
while you put the finishing touches on the Thanksgiving feast!
apples or pears
ring-shaped fruit oat cereal
To make Tom's tail feathers, set apple or pear on its side and then stick a few toothpicks into one end, as shown.
Stack cereal rings on each toothpick until it's nearly full and then place a mini marshmallow on each end.
Break a toothpick in half (Mom, you can snip with scissors for little ones.) and insert into apple or pear where you'd like the head to be.
Press a large marshmallow onto this toothpick and press cloves in for Tom's eyes. Using another half toothpick, secure a piece of candy corn to the front of the marshmallow for Tom's beak. Insert 3 toothpicks into the bottom of the apple so Tom can stand up.
Stick 2 more pieces of candy corn on the front 2 to make Tom's feet.That's it...he's almost as fun to eat as he is to make!
