Thanksgiving Fun!

A friend of mine pointed out these adorable Oreo turkeys, and almost a week ago, the whole fam got involved in the project of making some.  They were so cute, and the kids (and husband) just loved making them.  They're not bad to eat, either, like some sugar-laden holiday food decorations can be.  We really enjoyed them.  I won't bother including instructions for these; just go to the orginal recipe for that.  We forgot to buy Whoppers, so we used a few leftover Halloween chocolate balls for some of the heads, and for the rest, we used some mini-Oreos we had on hand.  I also didn't bother making the black frosting, just for the tiny eye-dots.  Instead, we used colored sprinkles for the eyes.  You can see that some of the white frosting is showing, and one of the little guys is in danger of losing his beak; we'll need to make these again for more practice.  The kids asked if we could make these every year!

The ones that I made with my 2nd graders were a bit different. They loved it.I prepped a lot of it for them (separating the cookie, smearing a dab of frosting on their plates, counting out the candies they needed)It made it much easier!
