PB&J "Turkey" Sandwich


I have mentioned before that I love hand print crafts and hand print turkeys.  This week, I combined the two for a special turkey sandwich.

First, I traced R's hand on paper and cut it out.  Then, I discovered that our bread is too small to fit R's hand, so I cut off some crust and used a little peanut butter to connect two slices of bread.


Then, I carefully cut her hand print out of the bread slices.  I covered the palm (body) and thumb (head/neck) with peanut butter.  The four fingers became feathers when I covered them with strawberry Polaner All Fruit.  I also added some almond slices for feathers to the body.  A raisin became the eye and a candy corn became the beak.  I was stumped when it came to the snood, but I eventually just took a small piece of the leftover bread and put some strawberry All Fruit on it.


R gobble gobbled it up and asked for another!
