Make turkey decorations from construction paper or fun foam - not your typical trace your hand turkey design!
Almost any age kids can do this - you may need to do some of the cutting if they can't; or purchase pre-cut hand pieces from craft stores (but that's not too thrifty).
Fun foam is firmer than construction paper, but either will work. You could even use fabric scraps, but it would need to be glued to a backing like cardboard.

At one time I had the directions to make a turkey centerpiece using two or three sets of knitted gloves. You use small gloves. I believe you stuffed the fingers to form the tails of this turkey centerpiece. Using three different colors of gloves made for a colorful turkey. Any help you could give me would be appreciated. Thanks!
