Pinecone and Construction Paper Turkey Craft

Pinecone and Construction Paper Turkey Craft

As my daughter and I prepare for the upcoming holidays, she and I have been hard at work making crafts for Thanksgiving. One of our recent crafts was a couple of pinecone and construction paper turkeys! She and I used cinnamon-scented pinecones for some extra holiday cheer, but you can use plain pinecones as well.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Cut the red, orange, yellow, and brown construction paper into elongated ovals.
  2. Glue the ovals along one edge of the bottom of the pinecone to form turkey feathers. Use plenty of glue to ensure a tight bond.
  3. Cut a small triangle from the orange paper and a wiggly shape from the red paper.
  4. Glue the orange triangle onto the top of the pinecone.
  5. Glue the red wiggle shape to the side of the orange triangle.
  6. Glue two wiggle eyes above the orange triangle.
  7. Allow the glue to dry completely.
