Here is a Thanksgiving project that children would enjoy making it for a Thanksgiving Activity in my opinion.
Wooden Spool Turkeys
Materials: Wooden spool, Covered floral wire (12-inch piece), , , , wire cutter or old scissors, Scissors, Colored paper, Small button, Feathers, Pen, and Clear tape
Wrap the middle section of wire twice around spool tightly. Twist together to secure. Bend wire to make a foot on each leg and trim excess with old scissors or wire cutter.
Trace the end of a spool and a button about 1" apart on paper. Connect the circles to form a neck, and add points on head. Cut out shape, and draw eyes, beak, and spiral.
Tape the paper body to one end of spool, then flip over and attach 3 feathers to other side, taping each one individually. Adjust feet so turkey stands.
