Oh, how pine cones and turkey feathers make a great combination. Here are some fun crafts for kids to make on Thanksgiving, keeping them busy until the food is ready.

It is perfect to use as a place holder on the table.

items collected on a nature walk.

They can also just be cute turkey decorations around the house or as part of the centerpiece. The kids will have fun with these before dinner and will be sure to stay out of the pumpkin pie.
