I adore these little Thanksgiving turkey cookies for kids. And the best part…. there is no baking required!

You know what else is great about them? The kids can help you assemble them.

These make perfect after school snacks, Thanksgiving Day treats, or treats for the school Fall party.

Take the lid off of the snack pack.

Stick the Milano cookie down into the pudding.

Arrange four to five of the Swedish Fish behind the cookie to look like feathers.

Use the white icing as glue to attach the candy eyes to the cookie.

Take one red Starburst candy and use a pinch of it to create a beak pressing the candy in between your fingers.

Then use the red icing to draw on the gobbler.
