We love this FUN Thanksgiving Turkey Board! Another fun “kid” idea is this EPIC Kid-Friendly Grilled Cheese Charcuterie Board.

They’re super family-friendly, and pretty easy-to-recreate if you love themed snack boards. By the way, she posted her Spooky Snack Board!

I made the Turkey Board, which is adorable for this season and Thanksgiving coming up.

The only thing I did differently is, I used a board with a lip. That way they are transportable and the food doesn’t fall off. I bought this board this weekend (food safe) at Costco, Friends, so you may want to grab it soon. It’s MIKASA Vintage Lazy Susan.

Turkey Board ingredients

The ingredients are easy for this board: 

  • brown Bosc pear
  • variety of scalloped crackers
  • cheddar cheese cracker cuts
  • green grapes
  • red grapes
  • pecans
  • dried apricots
  • baby carrots
  • snow peas
  • dried cherries
  • macadamia nut halves, for eyes (or we used mozzarella cheese)
  • red bell pepper, for snood
  • honey, for sticking items to pear

It took me about 45 minutes to make. I also did not cut the grapes in half, and I used plain pecans.

Isn’t Mr. Tom adorable? I think so!

Thanksgiving Turkey Board by The Baker Mama

Prep Time45 mins
Total Time45 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Keyword: thanksgiving turkey board, the baker mama, turkey board
Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 brown Bosc pear
  • variety of scalloped crackers
  • cheddar cheese cracker cuts
  • green grapes
  • red grapes
  • whole pecans
  • dried apricots
  • baby carrots
  • snow peas
  • dried cherries
  • macadamia nut halves for eyes (or mozzarella cheese)
  • red bell pepper for snood
  • honey for sticking items to pear

Instructions

  • Use a 15-inch round wooden board or any round board or serving platter you have.
  • Cut the brown Bosc pear in half and place the cut side down at the bottom of the board.
  • From the pear, fan out all of the snacks to look like turkey feathers. The scalloped crackers first and then two lines of the cheese cracker cuts between the lines of crackers.
  • On the left half of the board, add the green grapes, roasted almonds, baby carrots, snow peas, and dried cherries to fill the left side in.
  • On the right side of the board, add the red grapes, candied walnuts, dried apricots, snow peas and dried cherries to fill the right side in.
  • For the eyes, use two macadamia nut halves (or we used fresh mozzrella cheese cut into small circles) with a piece of dried cherry stuck to the middle of the flat side of each one. Place them on the pear, flat side up, with a little honey to hold them in place.
  • For the beak, cut a corner off of one of the cheddar cracker cuts and place it on the pear upside down.
  • For the snood, cut a small piece of a red bell pepper or red apple and place it on the pear under the beak with a little honey.
  • And for the feet, place two candied pecans at the bottom of the pear with a little honey so they stick in place.
  • Serve and enjoy!
