Use the template as a guide to cut the pieces out of construction paper. We used brown for the head, orange for the beak, red for the waddle and a mix of red, yellow, orange and brown for the different size feathers. I would recommend about 5 to 7 feathers of each size.

 Step Three:

Glue your google eyes to the head. Glue the beak on below the eyes. Glue the waddle on/near the beak. Allow this to dry for a few minutes or the eyes will just slide right off!

Glue your head to the pine cone. You can fold the bottom part of the paper to get it to slide into the pine cone a little better.

Glue your feathers to the back part of your pine cone. This is the turkey we made together.

This is a great activity to keep the kids busy while you are cooking Thanksgiving dinner. If you live in an area where you can collect pine cones, you can add a nature walk to your crafting time as well!
