My little man is really crafty so I’m always looking for fun craft ideas for kids. We came up with the idea of making this Thanksgiving turkey craft because we were looking for fun Thanksgiving activities for the kids. 

We used some mini pumpkins we had leftover from Halloween and some fall leaves to make these cute little pumpkin turkeys.

This is a very easy project to make with the kids. This pumpkin turkey craft would also make a really nice decoration for the Thanksgiving table or for a Thanksgiving party at school or at home.  

Thanksgiving Turkey Craft

Materials 

  • a small pumpkin
  • brown and yellow foamy
  • red felt
  • fall leaves
  • googly eyes
  • glue gun and glue sticks

We used store-bought leaves only because we don’t really have fall leaves available here in Florida but it would have been so much more fun to make these with real leaves.

You can also use foam pumpkins for this so that they will last longer.

  1. For the non artist crafty person it would be wonderful to have templates of the head, beak, wattle and feet. I love the idea. I want to make the pumpkin and use it as a placecard holder. Thank you for an easy idea, I think.
