Thanksgiving crafts for kids – how to make pinecone turkeys using felt, feathers and wiggle eyes!
Today I’m revisiting a craft we made last year. It’s our pinecone turkeys! Want to know something exciting? These guys are part of the 100 Days of Holidays Parents Magazine Newsletter.
To make these cute little guys go on a nature walk with the kiddos and find some pinecones. Grab some felt, feathers, wiggly eyes and you’re ready to go.
Step on: Cut your feathers in half
Step two: Use a small amount hot glue to add the feathers
Step three: glue on the eyes and beak
The kids will be making these again this year as they wait for Thanksgiving dinner. We’re going to try using Elmer’s glue instead of hot glue. If anyone tries it, let me know if it holds up well. :)
