Turn a few beautiful fall leaves into a fun Thanksgiving turkey using our printable template. We had read and talked about leaves so much with our fall crafts, that we thought they would make great feathers on a turkey. This is a cute Thanksgiving craft for preschoolers and makes a great decoration for the house.

What you'll need:

  • Craft foam
  • Printable turkey template
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Optional* craft stores sell pre-cut craft foam leaves this time of year. Using these will save you some cutting.
How to make this Leaf Turkey Craft
  1. Print our template and cut the pieces out. Trace the pieces onto craft foam. You need a red, orange and yellow leaf to complete the craft.
  2. Cut out all of your craft foam pieces.
  3. Glue the leaves onto the body of the turkey.
  4. Turn the body over and glue on the rest of the pieces to complete your turkey.
