Here is a fun idea to do with pretty leaves from your yard.  You can use fresh leaves or ones that you have pressed, dried and preserved between clear contact paper.   Lay a pine cone down on its side.  Stick in leaf “feathers” at the widest end of the pine cone.  Use white craft glue to attach “googly” eyes. Small leaves can be used for the beak and wattle of your turkey.

These make cute centerpieces and are tons of fun to create for ages preschool to senior citizen.
