Fall is a great time to sit around your table with the younger ones and make a few cute kids’ crafts. These little pine cone cuties are a traditional favorite! Today we are sharing a fun printable pattern with our own twist. You can find this pattern and the photo tutorial for these felt and pine cone turkeys at the end of this post. If you want some other fun Thanksgiving craft ideas you can make with kids, take a look at our turkey finger puppet and turkey crayon cup.
All you need for these felt and pine cone turkeys is a stack of felt, scissors, googly eyes, and some glue. Though I use hot glue for almost everything I make, a white craft glue would work well too—especially for little ones.
Felt is so fun to craft with and once you have the pieces trimmed, you can make these pine cone turkeys come to life with their own personalities. See my step-by-step tutorial of how I made these little turkeys below and you can download and print the pattern at the end of the post. We would love to see the results of your kids’ crafts so make sure and share photos on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
