This pinecone turkey craft is a perfect kids craft idea for Thanksgiving! It’s so easy anyone can do it, and the materials are cheap.
I’ll never forget a little pinecone turkey craft I made in the second grade. Not only did we make the turkeys as part of art class, but we also made houses for them out of tissue paper boxes. I named mine Elliot and saved him for years, and I even added to his house regularly.
He had a bed, chair, and all sorts of items in his kleenex box house . . . I believe he even had a picture of family members I made on the wall. I guess it’s not a big surprise that over 30 years later I’m a craft blogger!
These pinecone turkeys are SO easy to make and I love that kids can participate in Thanksgiving crafts with this fun idea.
It’s fun to collect the pinecones and then choose the feather colors . . . then put it all together using items you have in your pantry. I love that you can make a “glue” with sugar and use it in kids’ crafts! Here’s how to do it.
