Thanksgiving is just 15 days away!
I wanted to share my FAVORITE Thanksgiving project with y'all!
I make these Turkey Pinecones with my kiddos every year. Believe it or not, they store really well, and I have a few of them up on the mantle at my house. I uploaded the directions and a few fun activities to TeachersPayTeachers.
Some years, I have the kids bring in pinecones. Other years, I buy the scented cinnamon pinecones! They smell AMAZING, and my whole classroom smells like CINNAMON.
Note: I like to get fall-colored pipe cleaners for these turkeys. However, sometimes the kids just want their turkey to have hot pink feathers, and that's OK too. For the legs, I try to find the giant pipe cleaners that are extra furry!
I've also added several fun, independent activities that kiddos can work on while they are waiting for their turn to make a turkey pinecone! These are all part of the FREEBIE on TpT!
I usually have most of these supplies in my art cabinet. If I'm out of something, I can usually beg my room mom or another volunteer for a donation! :) Parents LOVE these as much as the kids do!
