    Turkey Marshmallows? Don't try this one at home: Messy Edible Thanksgiving Craft super fun for kids

    Marshmallow Turkey Place Setting fun Favor for Kids to Make

    I thought about not posting our failed attempt at Turkey Marshmallows, but it was so much fun for kids; I kept trying hoping for a perfect one. Then, I thought about the difficulty we had and decided more than likely it will happen to you too. We all struggle with perfection. If you want to have some fun with your kids, try this! If you want to make a beautiful, impressive, Thanksgiving table setting... Don't!

    I tried with fresh marshmallows. Then with frozen marshmallows to buy some more time.  The kids loved it!   They loved getting messy, they loved eating the mistakes - but it never seemed to work.  I know, I said it's all good and it was good... just somewhat disappointing. You've seen those cute snowman marshmallow party favors or table decorations?

    I thought , that looks simple so why not try it with a turkey theme.

    Well, here's why not:





    First, we stuck toothpicks through the marshmallows for added stability - maybe not the best idea for little ones who like to grab the marshmallows and eat them.



    So, then we tried to "glue' them together with chocolate icing.

      They looked cute for about two second but the weight of the DOT candies we used for "turkey feathers" caused our turkeys to topple! Every time we tried something new, the marshmallows got gooey and goo-ier.
    This part attracted my 4 year old, son who previously had no interest in the project, "Hey, I want to make one! Can I eat your broken one?" "Sure, why not?" Well, his actually stayed standing a little longer...

    for your holiday place setting: Jake's (4 yrs.)

    I think it's because he has a shorter attention span and wasn't into decorating like the girls were, so the marshmallows didn't melt as quickly. Also, he used plain toothpicks for tail-feathers. 

    What you will need to make the attempt:
    • Marshmallows - they make chocolate ones that are conceptually great for a Turkey - but stickier than the good, old white variety.
    • Icing white or chocolate for "Glue".
    • Toothpicks.
    • Candies for the tail-feathers - we tried "Dots" and "Milk Duds" but something lighter would work better. Any ideas? I am thinking chocolate chips or mini marshmallows.
    • "M and M's", "Red Hots", Chocolate Chips, or Necklace candy for facial features.
    • Plastic knife or spoon to spread icing.
    • Lots of baby wipes to clean sticky hands.

    Good idea, messy results.
