So, when I got to the school to sign up for the Fall Feast, pretty much everything I liked to do was gone...ok, the sweets. (Click here for this year's sweet, last year's sweet AND the year before's sweet. ) Veggies were all that was left to bring. Well, if you know me at all, you know I had to do this. I just can't help it.
It actually didn't take all that long...just poked a couple of toothpicks in the veggies and then poked them into the cabbage I used for a base. You could really use any vegetables you like...I tried to keep it limited to what 4 year olds might like...broccoli, carrots, tomatoes and mushrooms. The Veggie Turkey was also offered with Ranch Dip. They all seemed to really get a kick out of the turkey. After the party, only the lettuce, squash and few tomatoes remained. They really gobbled it up! (I know, that was bad.)
I made do with what I had...lots of left over Halloween Candy. Candy corn feathers, red m&m face, and banana Laffy Taffy cut outs for the beaks. No pretzels on hand, so I guess I made a replica of the rare legless turkey...so much more sophisticated!
Wrapped them in cellophane bags tied with jute. Made easy little tags out of craft paper and a turkey stamp using watermark ink.
For one of his classes I sent them in a galvanized bucket...for the other, I wrapped a tin can with burlap and tied with jute. Both looked pretty cute!
