How to make Turkey donuts

STEP 1: Prepare your supplies

When doing activities with young children it is always easier to have all your supplies ready to go! Lay out your mini glazed donuts on a tray and have all your other supplies and ingredients to hand.

STEP 2: Add toothpicks and fruit loops

To make the feathers on your turkey donut you are going to thread fruit loops cereal onto tooth picks. Place 4 toothpicks about ½ inch apart into each donut. Then fill each toothpick with Fruit Loops. You can have one colour per toothpick or you can make patterns with the fruit loops. There is no wrong way!

STEP 3: Make the beak and wattle

Push one orange fruit loop into the front of each donut as the beak. Then break some red fruit loops in half and push them in next to the beaks. This will represent the wattle.

STEP 4: Add eyes 

Place on two eyes right above the beak and wattle. Push in a little hard so they stick.
