Your kids can create an easy oatmeal cream pie turkey treat after Thanksgiving dinner. The DIY turkey dessert is fun and simple to set up for the kids to enjoy.
How is Thanksgiving already here? Last year I had just had a baby and I don’t think I really cared what holiday it was because I was so tired. But this year I decided to get ambitious and host our family Thanksgiving for 15 people. So while I am trying to figure out how to brine a turkey fun activities like this oatmeal cream pie turkey treat will be occupying my 4 year old.
We did a test run on this easy to make turkey dessert a few weeks ago. My daughter had lots of fun arranging the colorful feathers on her cute little turkey.

Oatmeal Cream Pie Turkey Treat
I was in a turkey breakfast theme earlier this month. Turkey shaped Bagels with Apple feathers and Turkey shaped Eggs in a basket were hits at the breakfast table. We love fun shaped food! So we expanded to a cute after school treat with this oatmeal cream pie turkey treat dessert.
You could even set up a little oatmeal cream pie turkey treat station for the kids to make after Thanksgiving dinner. So while you are eating your favorites like 5 minute caramel pie or pumpkin cheesecake, the kids can DIY their own sweet turkey.
What You Need:
Store bought desserts with a holiday twist became a favorite of ours over Halloween. They are so easy and provide a no bake way to get kids involved in the kitchen. The steps to make these oatmeal cream pie turkey treats are very simple.
I prepped everything, gave my 4 year old some guidance on how it would look and then let her get to work. To prep the oatmeal cream pie, take a knife and gently separate the two cookie pieces. Just do it carefully since the oatmeal cookies are very soft.
Cut up the air heads to make smaller feathers. I used leftover Halloween candy for this part!
Now just have your kids arrange the feathers. Replace the top oatmeal cookie and create a turkey face. The candy corn is the nose and I cut a tiny piece of a red airhead for the turkey gobbler.
Here is my little one working very seriously on her oatmeal cream pie turkey treat after Mother’s Day Out one day.
My little one had fun making these quick and easy turkey treats. Would your kids enjoy making this?
