The hustle and bustle of the holidays is real.

But it’s also a great time to craft with kids! Not only will you get some homemade Thanksgiving decorations out of it, but it’s also a perfect opportunity for little turkeys to develop their fine motor skills, explore their creativity, and learn about the holiday and what it means to be thankful.


In addition to these turkey-themed crafts,

kids can further practice hand-eye and

fine motor skills with our activity books!


1. Pinecone Turkey Craft

These pinecone turkeys are super fun and easy to make—and kids can practice their tracing, cutting, and pasting skills at the same time!

• Pinecone 
• Construction paper 
• Washable markers 
• Safety scissors 
• Glue 

Instructions: 


  1. Use a marker to trace your hand on construction paper.
  2. Cut out the hand tracing. Make as many as you wish! (Don’t forget to teach kids about the importance of scissor safety.) 
  3. Write a name on each pinecone turkey’s paper hand to make placeholders, write what you’re thankful for on each finger, or simply leave it blank. The choice is yours! 
  4. Draw and cut out a shape for the turkey’s head and beak. Color in eyes and the beak for the face. 
  5. Glue the hands to the flat part of the pinecone and the turkey’s head on the opposite end.
