Have older kids turn those pinecones littering your yard into the basis of this cute felt turkey craft. The printable (with a $5 membership) pattern from Lia Griffith gives you a template for making heads, feathers, and feet in any color of felt you choose; add craft eyes and hot glue it all together for a decorative project you can use as part of your Thanksgiving place setting (and not just at the kids' table).
