You need several cups of dyed packing peanuts (<---- here is how we did it)

My nine year old was able to stick in his wood skewers by himself.  A preschool or kindergartner could easily do this craft, but help them with sticking the 6-7 skewers in the back of the squash.

Then your child just pushes the dyed packing peanuts over the skewers, filling them to the top.

Aren’t they pretty turkey feathers? And I love that it is a 3D, textured turkey craft.

When your feathers are all complete use glue to attach google eyes and a construction paper beak, wattle, and feet. 

This makes such a cute Thanksgiving centerpiece!
