How do you make a Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board?

We’ve seen some super impressive Turkey themed platters but since this is  kid-friendly food blog, we like to keep it super simple here! We used a pear as a turkey base and simple veggie details for the features such as carrots for the beak and legs. Then we just added some cheese, crackers and meat! So easy and fun to make in a cinch! You’re literally laying ingredients together which kids love to do 🙂

What can you add to this turkey and cheese platter?

If you want to spruce this up and get a large platter or board you could easily add some more fixings that would appeal to adults too. 

Here are some fun additions:

  • olives
  • fall fruits like grapes or figs
  • dips like hummus, spinach or Ranch
  • exotic jams or spreads
