If you’re looking for some fun Thanksgiving activities for kids, this leaf turkey craft is easy for kids to make and makes a cute decoration! My kids enjoy making crafts to celebrate our favorite holidays, so they were so excited to make this one together!
Turkey Leaf Craft for Kids
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 9-12 Fall Leaves, different colors and shapes
- 3 Pieces Felt—1 each of Red, Orange, Brown
- 1 Piece White Paper, 12×12
- 2 Googly Eyes, self-stick
Cut out a large turkey body about 9” tall or so. I cut mine out in the shape of a bowling pin, so it looks like a head and a body. Glue this on the paper.
Attach 2 googly eyes on the head.
Cut out an orange triangle for the beak and glue on under the eyes.
Cut out a red wattle and glue this on the side of the beak.
Glue leaves all around the turkey body in a fanned-out position so they look like the turkey’s feather.
Let it set and dry for about an hour.
