Pinecone Fall Leaf Turkey
This turkey is made from a pinecone with fall leaves glued on for tail feathers. Use as many leaves as the turkey tail needs to be full. The ones that are a little fresher and not so crunchy won't fall apart as easily as the crunchy ones.
Draw a head, cut it out, and find a niche in the pinecone to glue it into. Tacky glue is used because it sticks pretty fast. Gluing on the leaves and head can be frustrating if the glue is too runny.
Younger children will need a lot of help from an adult or a helpful older child. The reward may be using the sweet pinecone fall leaf turkey for a centerpiece on the Thanksgiving table.
