Our leaves haven’t begun to change colors yet, but they will soon. Making a Fall Thanksgiving Leaf Turkey picture would be a fun way to use colorful fall leaves. Sometimes leaves from shrubs and plants are even more colorful so be sure to check those too. You can always use artificial leaves if the season doesn’t fall at the right time for a Fall Thanksgiving Leaf Turkey.
Fall Thanksgiving Leaf Turkey
- 9-12 Fall Leaves, different colors, and shapes or artificial leaves
- 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. Fun and easy fall craft for kids!
