Aren’t they cute?  The original was created by Boo when she was in kindergarten.  Since all of the feathers have definite color patterns, I’m sure her wise teacher used it as a fun way to practice patterns.

If you are wondering why colors of the “feathers” are nothing like the colors of a real turkey, you have probably never tried to talk a little girl out of using her favorite colors!  It’s definitely a battle I know is absolutely useless.  The colors have actually grown on me.  (Who says a turkey can’t dress up like a peacock?)

This craft is perfect for preschool and kindergarten, but I’m a grown up, and I enjoyed it, so your older kids might like it, too.  (You’re never too old to string beads, right?)
