This is a fun little weekend project. Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, these are fun for the kids at family gatherings or to give as a gift if you are going to someone elses house. My grandkids did the painting, and the good part is,they can be made with a minimum of tools. They are easy and alot of fun to do, with your kids or you can make them and have the spouse paint them. Hopefully you can see from the picture the measurements. This is the first time I have tried to upload any pictures, thanks to Superstretch for his advice on doing that. Anyways, if you have any questions I would be happy to answer them. Enjoy, Ron
Each Turkey takes 24 Tootsie Roll Pops and they go fast with little ones around so make sure you have plenty on hand.

-- I just don't understand. I have cut it 3 times and it is still to short.

Im sure the children would get a kick out of this. Not only building, but the candy eating too.

That would be a bold turkey if my grand kids saw it.

Leanne, I have made several of these and now some of my neighbor kids are even asking if they can paint. Its lots of fun, plus they like to eat the suckers and when they start getting all sugar high I just send them home to mom and dad, works for me LOL
