Get your kids into nature with this easy-to-make turkey made with FREE items found in your very own backyard. All you need are a variety of leaves, paper, glue, and color utensils. Ok then, let’s make a turkey!
Step 1: Start with a blank piece of paper. Then, glue leaves down in a single file row one by one.
Step 2: Next, glue on fluffy sprigs of pine, cedar, or Christmas tree pieces to the center of the paper.
Step 3: On a separate sheet of paper, draw, color, and cut out a turkey head and neck. Then, glue it in the center of the branches.
Step 4: On the same sheet of paper where you drew your turkey head and neck, draw a wide circle. Color, cut, and glue the circle below the turkey’s neck.
Step 5: Next, draw, color, and cut out two thin rectangles for the legs. Glue to the body.
Final step: Draw, color, and cut out two small circles for the feet. Add an orange leaf in the corner of the paper for the sun. Adding multi-colored peppercorns to the branches adds great detail.
There is no limit to what you can make with natural materials you can find in your very own park or backyard.
