We love a festive craft around here! The best part about this craft is the simple supply list. We created these cute little turkeys after a nature hunt to pick out leaves. We also paired it with a few of our top five Thanksgiving read alouds. Let’s get started with our Turkey Craft for Kids!
*Pair this craft with our Thanksgiving Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!

How To Make the Turkey Craft
These little leaf turkeys were so fun to make and turned out so cute!
I separated our supplies into a plastic tray for ease. Before we started, I cut beaks and wattles out of construction paper. I made one example, but let my daughter use the supplies as she wanted!
I love this invitation to create method to crafting. It allows children to use their imaginations and creativity!
Finally, we hung our finished turkeys in the window for display. It was a perfect craft to pair with any of our top five Thanksgiving read alouds.
Top Five Thanksgiving Read Alouds
A sweet, funny story about a group of children who plan to save turkeys before Thanksgiving. This would be a perfect story to pair with a writing prompt.
A hilarious story about a turkey in disguise! This would also pair perfectly with an extended response writing prompt. Students could write about what animal they would disguise themselves as.
A very sweet story about a turkey who is an honored guest at Thanksgiving instead of the main course!
A great story that touches on the facts and events of the first Thanksgiving.
A touching story that teaches children what it means to be thankful!
We hope you enjoy this easy craft that pairs perfectly with any of these fun stories! Happy Thanksgiving!
