Can you believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner?!  Wow!

Well, since I became a Stay-at-Home-Mom, I've been trying to put together fun crafts and activities to do with the kids.  Here is one we came up with last week.

Scrap Fabric Turkey Craft
You'll need:
Red, Brown, Yellow and Orange Foam or Construction Paper
Orange Pipe Cleaners
Googly Eyes
Brown Scrap Fabric
Glue
Stapler

First trace your hands on the foam or paper.  My little man really enjoyed this part!

Cut your hand prints out and glue them together.

Take your fabric scraps and slice through it about an inch.

Now, tear the fabric into strips.  This gives your turkey and "fuzzy" look and the kids love it!

They look a bit like this.  You'll want 10-15 pieces that are about 4 inches long.

Pile them all together and and tie them together with another piece of fabric.

Slide your pipe cleaner through the knot and twist it once.  These will be the legs.

Add some feet to your pipe cleaners.

Then staple your fabric turkey to your foam feathers.

Now you have a turkey!  He'll sit up on his own if you bend his legs.  

We had a great time with this!  Hope you do too!
