Pine Cone Turkey

Pine Cone Turkey by TrishSutton.com; a little paint and glue, a couple googly eyes, a pipe cleaner and some feathers makes for a fun craft for little ones!My three year old has a prize “pine cone co-wection”. 

Yep.  He collects Pine Cones.

And mostly his collection sits on a shelf in his bedroom however from time to time we create fun animals with his Pine Cones.  (See our Easter Bunny here.)

This week we created Turkeys!
Feathers included.

My tot happens to be quite impressed with his creation.  He told me that he liked his better than mine.  Therefore, I present to you HIS Pine Cone Turkey.

His Turkey’s head has red paint.  Mine does not.  Maybe that makes his better.  I really couldn’t see much of a difference myself but he shared his opinion with such conviction that I will spare my readers the sight of my Pine Cone Turkey.

Items you’ll need to collect to create these seasonal birds…
– Pine Cones
– Colorful Paints
– Paint Brushes
– Feathers (or Construction Paper)
– Googly Eyes
– Pipe Cleaner
– Glue

Paint the Pine Cone (allow plenty of time to dry) then attach the Googly Eyes and Feathers with Glue.  One Pipe Cleaner was plenty for the two turkey’s gobblers and feet.  And we were able to push the Pipe Cleaner into place without using glue.
