Mosaic Turkeys

Trace the outline of your hand on a piece of paper with a soft pencil. Ask if you may search button boxes, sewing machine drawers, and junk drawers at home for bits of yarn, string, beans, cereral, rickrack, buttons, seeds, cloth, and any other small items. Some good designs can be made by using small pieces of colored paper. When you have found a variety of objects, glue each in place on the outline to make a turkey. (See illustration.) Add legs, feet and any other features of the turkey you desire. Use you imagination!
