Make A Pinecone Turkey

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! This fun and easy activity is a great way to dress up any holiday table, and also makes the perfect little Thanksgiving gift for grandparents, family, and friends.

Materials Needed:

  • Pinecone
  • Googly eyes or craft eyes
  • Glue (hot glue works best)
  • Piece of orange foam, cut into small triangle shape for beak (may use orange construction paper as a substitute)
  • Red pipe cleaner, cut into small length and curved for wattle
  • Colored construction paper (fall colors)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  1. Turn your pinecone on its side. Glue eyes, beak, and wattle in appropriate locations. Hot glue works best, so be sure to do this with parental supervision and help. Note: the size of the eyes, beak, and wattle will depend on the size of your pinecone.
  1. Trace your child’s hand on a few pieces of colored construction paper. Cut out and spread apart. Glue to the back of the pinecone as feathers.

*Bonus option: On each finger of the traced hands, have your child write one thing they are thankful for.
