Leafy Turkey
Use leaves from your backyard and your own hand to make this festive Thanksgiving craft.
  • Glue
  • Colorful leaves (If your leaves are too curly or bumpy to work with, put them under a heavy book to flatten them.)
  • Markers
  • Paper
Step 1
Trace Hand

Trace your child's hand onto a sheet of paper.

Step 2
Draw Turkey
  • Draw an eye and a beak where the thumb is.
  • Draw legs where the heel of the hand is.
Step 3
Glue on Leaves
  • Give the turkey a colorful tail by gluing long, thin leaves to where the fingers are.
  • Glue on a short, round leaf to the middle of the hand for the turkey's wing. Let the glue dry before you hang it up or share it with a friend.
