  • Mini pumpkin
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Tooth picks
  • Markers
  • Turkey printable.


We started off with painting the pumpkin (body of the turkey) in various turkey feather colors. You could use just use brown for the body of the turkey.I set out some acrylics with a metallic finish.


Once we were done, daddy promptly asked if we were making a red bell pepper! My heart sank :l Of course I came back with “Since when do bell peppers have 5 different colors?” To be fair, the pumpkin does look like a bell pepper from this angle.
