Arts and Crafts: Pine Cone Turkeys

Thanksgiving can be hectic if you're hosting the holiday dinner, so take a shortcut and enlist your lil tykes when it comes to dressing the table. These pine cone turkeys will add the perfect amount of character to your table-scape and buy you some quality time with the kids. No one will notice if your stuffing is a bit dry.

Supplies:
This is the supply list for one turkey.

  • 1 pine cone
  • 5 feathers in a variety of colors
  • 1 sheet of red construction paper
  • 1 sheet of red tissue paper
  • glue
  • scissors



Constructing the Turkey:
These are the instructions for a basic pine cone turkey. Let your kids add their own touches using googly eyes, glitter or more feathers to your bird.

  1. Glue feathers on the top of the pine cone.
  2. Glue two circles on the front of the pine cone for eyes. Use a black marker to draw pupils in the center of the eyes.
  3. Tear a corner off of the sheet of red tissue paper and crumple up to resemble turkey's wattle.

When I was a kid, we would put peanut butter all over the pine cone, and then roll it in bird seed to make a bird feeder. Simple, but a cute kid's project!

My son made me an ADORABLE one using a yellow pom pom for the head, wiggly eyes & red construction paper for the gobble/orange for the beak, pipe cleaners for the feet, construction paper & tissue paper for the feathers, and a pine cone for the body in his Kindergarten class. I absolutely love it. :)
