It’s super easy to create this Turkey Snack Platter with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Assemble your favorites into a crunchy, fruity, seasonal snack plate that makes an appetizer kids will gobble up for Thanksgiving dinner — or a fun activity for you and the kids!


We used:

  • Pear (for turkey body)
  • Carrot (for turkey legs and nose)
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds (leftover from our Halloween pumpkin!)
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Green grapes
  • Edible googly eyes

More ideas:

  • Nuts and crackers
  • Cereals and granola
  • Sliced fruits (dried or fresh)
  • Raisins
