I saw this cute idea for a Thanksgiving center piece in the current issue of Parents Magazine. You just wrap a styrofoam ball with brown yarn, and then use a lighter color yarn to make a ball for the head. Use felt for the eyes, beak, and the waddle. For the feathers, we used construction paper and taped toothpicks to the bottom that just stick into the body of the turkey. You are suppose to write something you are thankful for on each feather. I had planned to do one feather for each day of November, so we'd have a filled out turkey by Thanksgiving, but there she sits all pretty on our kitchen table so maybe we'll just start that tradition next year.
