I make the trukey handprint craft, but we turn it into a hat for our Thanksgiving feast by stapling it to a cardstock headband.

I also do a coffee filter turkey. You need 1 coffee filter per student. Children color on their coffee filters with water-based markers. Spritz the filters with water and the colors will all spread and blend. While the filters are drying, children each trace and cut out a turkey shape on brown construction paper. The shape is a thinner oval with a circle below it-like a squash kind of shape. They add feet, a beak, and wattle with construction paper scraps. They draw in the eyes. Glue the body to the filter. Hang the finished turkey on the window and they look like stained glass.
