Candy Corn Turkey Thanksgiving Food Craft

How to make turkey graham crackers with candy corn for Thanksgiving.
Total Time 10 mins


  • Graham Cracker Square
  • Candy Corn
  • Frosting or other Spread
  • Vanilla Wafers 
  • **Food Coloring PensS** or Frosting
  • Knife
  • Optional: Liquid Food Coloring


  • Optional: Mix food coloring into white frosting. 
    Put a dollop of frosting on the graham cracker. Spread the frosting across it so it's smooth. You can use white frosting, chocolate frosting, or frosting that has been colored with food coloring. 
    Tip: Leave the frosting out 30 minutes-1 hour so it can get to room temperature before doing the activity to make it easier for little fingers to spread. 
    Draw a turkey face including the eyes, beak, and turkey wattle on the Vanilla Wafer using Food Coloring Pens. I love using these to make Food Crafts! If you don't have them you can use colored frosting. I always keep little tubes of Black Frosting around.
    Optional: Instead of drawing eyes you could use frosting to stick candy eyeballs on the Vanilla Wafer. 
    Stick the Vanilla Wafer towards the bottom part of the graham cracker. Remember to leave room for the candy corn feathers that will be placed at the top.
    Stick candy corn above the top of the cookie to make the turkeys feathers. The candy corn fits together when the sides are lined up next to each other. We put 3-5 candy corn on each one.
