Make a Playful Turkey Masterpiece with Your Family!

“Why did the turkey join a band? Because it had the drumsticks!” Cue the drumroll and get ready for some feathered fun in the kitchen with your family! Spend valuable time together transforming these simple ingredients into a playful turkey masterpiece. Using a scoop of sunflower butter as the body, pretzels for the feathers, and small nuts or fruit for the face, your child will have fun while also growing a love for cooking. If you don’t want to use peanut butter, try using cream cheese instead. Make the experience a special bonding time by talking with your child about the process and how it helps them to learn and grow. Cooking together is a recipe for the most memorable moments, so get ready to gobble up the fun and create lasting memories in the kitchen! Remember to take some photos of the magnificent creation!


  • Sun butter (or alternative)
  • Candy eyes
  • A raisin
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Pretzel twists
  • Ice cream scoop


  1. Take your ice cream scoop and scoop out a ball of sun butter. After putting the scoop onto a plate, you may need to reshape it a bit to form a ball shape.
  2. Add eyes to the front of the ball.
  3. Insert a small piece of pretzel under the eyes as a beak.
  4. Shape a raisin into a “gobble” and place it next to the beak.
  5. Add pretzel twists and sticks on top of the sun butter ball to form the turkey tail.
  6. Serve with more pretzels so that everyone can dip the pretzels into the sun butter!
