Cute Gumdrop Turkeys

    I found this somewhere in blogland and pinned it! I thought the little Gumdrop Turkey was a perfect Arts and Crafts project for my Little Cup.

    While out picking up you last minute Thanksgiving ingredients at the store, stop by the candy or bulk foods section and pick up some supplies!

    While my Little Cup and two other friends played, I got 3 plates of the “ingredients” ready for them to create! All the kids will enjoy this project while you slave away in the kitchen.

    • Attach one or two gumdrops to five of the toothpicks. These are the tail feathers.
    • Break the last toothpick and half. This is the neck. Attach one gumdrop to the short toothpick.

    Tip: Watch the weight of the tail in the back. We had some issues with Turkeys falling over backwards.
