Here is a cute turkey you can make with your kids for fall or Thanksgiving. Fall leaves are used to make the turkey’s feathers.
- Fall leaves
- Clip art turkey
- Construction paper for background
For the body of the turkey you can either draw your own or search for some turkey clip art on Google. I found this cute one here. It says the graphic is free to use for the public domain. I printed it out and cut it out to use for the body of our turkey.
For the feathers, you and your child can have some fun hunting for fall leaves. You will want the leaves to be nice and dry and flat, so collect them a week before you do this project and press them between the pages of a large book like a phone book.
Have your child glue the body of the turkey to a piece of construction paper and then glue on the dried leaves for the turkey’s feathers.
That’s it! This is a really cute easy project for Thanksgiving. I love the natural look of the leaves.
If you are looking for some fun turkey stories for Thanksgiving, The Amazing Turkey Rescue is one of my son’s favorites. We read it every year.
