Thanksgiving Craft: Pine Cone Turkeys

Have you gone out on your Fall Nature Hike?  If you haven’t I highly recommend some familia time with the kiddos and enjoying nature.  If you don’t have a bosque near you then go out to a craft store and purchase some pine cones.

Our boys enjoyed making this with, not me, but get this their papi.  I came downstairs and I see all of my men crafting! It was simply maravilloso!  This happened mostly because our 5 year old loves to craft and initiated it and papi couldn’t say no.  My husband tries to be involved in their hobbies even if they don’t interest him.  What a lindo papi they have!

1. Collect your pine cones or as mentioned above purchase them.

2. You will need: feathers, google eyes, pine cones, construction paper and glue.

3. Start creating. Glue feathers to the back of the turkey. Use the construction paper to make the face and glue googly eyes.

In the picture above, for the middle turkey we used eucalyptus bud for the face instead of construction paper.
