Take children on an outdoor walk to gather lots of fall leaves and pinecones. Help children glue leaves onto a piece of paper to make a fan shape of leaves. That is the turkey's feathers. At the bottom center of the leaf fan, use lots of glue to paste a pinecone (vertically). That is the turkey's body. Use bits of colored felt to glue eyes, an orange beak, and a red wobbler onto the turkey. Let dry well and display.
