Sheri's Fun Fruit Turkey
This fun fruit plate is great for Thanksgiving. Serve with chocolate sauce or yogurt. The possibilities are endless! Prepare all ingredients and set out on a table for the kids to assemble. Makes for a fun afternoon

Ingredients of Sheri's Fun Fruit Turkey
1 pear
4 raisins
1 walnut half, broken in half lengthwise
4 whole dried apricots
1 sweet eating apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
1 (15 ounce) can mandarin orange sections, well drained

Preparation of Sheri's Fun Fruit Turkey
Slice the pear in half lengthwise, core, remove the stem, and set each half on a plate with the cut side down. This is the body of the turkey. Cut 2 raisins in half to make 4 eyes, and set the eyes onto the narrower part of the pear. Cut a small slice from one end of the 2 remaining raisins, and stick a raisin below the eyes to make beaks. Press a broken piece of walnut, smooth side up, into each pear below the beaks to make wattles.
Trim the dried apricots into 4 feet with 3 fat toes, and place two feet at the bottom of each pear. Arrange apple wedges alternating with mandarin orange sections in a fan shape around the top of the turkey, for feathers.
