  1. Collect leaves.
  2. Draw turkey shapes. 
  3. Cut out turkey shapes. 
  4. Glue on leaves. 
  5. Glue on turkey shapes and eyes. 
  6. Let dry. 
  7. Optional, seal with clear contact paper. 

We collected leaves and other items in October for some other activities and I still had the bag hanging up to ready to use for our November crafts.

I pre-cut the turkey's body, beak, snood, and feet.  If your child is skilled with scissors you can draw the shape and have them cut it out.  Or you can have them draw and cut out the shapes if they are older.

We glued all the pieces onto a large piece of construction paper.  I would recommend using newly collected leaves so they don't crumble.  Another idea is to use clear contact paper to seal the leaves for a fresh look.  You could also use leaf clip art instead of real leaves.

A quick search also leads me to recommend craft leaves or craft feathers or even purchasing a kit for your children to create their own turkey.  (affiliate links)

I joined up with the Timberdoodle Blog Hop this week!

  1. What a cute Thanksgiving craft! It would be cute to do it on 11" x 17" construction paper and then laminate it for placemats!
