The idea is to cut out a Turkey body, (I used a brown paper bag stuffed with newspapers for our Turkey body) and stick it up on the wall with tape or sticky tack:
And then cut out a bunch of feathers using construction paper:
Anytime someone thinks of something they are grateful for, they pick out a feather and write it on there. Then they add the feather to the wall around the turkey with tape or sticky tack. (We put ours on the side of our file-cabinet--hence the black background).
After a month of gratitude, our turkey turned out to be quite a thankful fat-feathered-fowl indeed!
