flower turkey activity fun

November 16, 2009

We were playing outside this past weekend (enjoying some beautiful November weather) and decided to go on a turkey hunt. It turned out to be a lot of fun, so I thought I would share it with you.

Juliet chose a piece of bark, and I drew a turkey face on it with a sharpie. We plucked a red petal from one of our flowers and stuck it on his chin to make a wattle. Then we walked around looking for objects that looked like turkey feathers.

This is the last Gerber daisy in our garden. We plucked the bottom petals off and then placed the turkey head in the middle. Voila! A turkey!

Next, we found some giant purple coneflowers by our mailbox and thought they would make splendid turkey feathers. Juliet worked hard to get the head to stay balanced on the flower, but we eventually got it.

Lastly, we found a beautiful red leaf to serve as some plumage. The game ended here because our neighbor came outside with her pet pig on a leash--pigs on a leash beat bark turkeys EVERY TIME.

Do you have any fun turkey crafts to share? I'd love to hear about them!

Those are so creative! Sounds like a nice weekend to enjoy nature. It snowed 4 inches where I live! No flowers alive here!
