I know it is a bit late, but if you are still looking for a turkey craft, that is a little more on the open-ended side, then check this one out.
I gave the boys a printout of feathers ( I got my copy from The Mailbox, but you could draw your own),with paints on a plate, and each a feather.
They painted the turkey feathers with a feather. I was amazed that Alligator was semi-interested in this. He actually painted a bit.
Monkey chose to fill in each of his feathers with a different color.
Here are Alligator and Monkey’s finished paintings
Then once the dried we cut them out and glued them to a turkey cut out (again from The Mailbox, and you could draw your own).
