Fall Leaf Turkey
Go out into your backyard and gather the supplies needed for this unique craft. The leaves and pine cones may not look like much, but once this craft is complete turns out rather cute.
To make place and glue leaves gathered in a half circle (or fan) on the sheet of paper to create the turkey’s tail feathers. Glue the pine cone on to the center bottom to create the turkey’s face, then glue on eyes. If desired, you can make a beak and red wobbler from construction paper or felt and glue onto pine cone. Let thoroughly dry and then display.
This is not only a fun craft, but it makes a great decoration for the Thanksgiving dinner table. You will need the help of your kids to make.
