Shake your Tail Feather

How cute are these fruity turkeys?? What a fun idea for a kids table at Thanksgiving!! I was looking through Disney's Family Fun website and came across this adorable edible idea. I just had to share. They had many cute ideas for making delicious and fun Thanksgiving recipes, they really wanna make you shake a tail feather!!
A yummy dip in a festive bowl would really be great with this!!

Here's how you make it per the instructions on their website:

Bosc pear (head)
Melon (body)
Cheese (beak and tail feathers)
Red pepper (snood, feet and side feathers)
Raisins (eyes)
Grapes (tail feathers)
Bamboo skewers

Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a Bosc pear head to the melon, as shown.
Cut a cheese triangle beak and red pepper snood. Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick.
Cut red pepper feet and set them in place. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.
