This is all Ava. She held up a popsicle stick and a feather and said, "Mommy, let's make a turkey puppet!" It was also her idea to make it a "mommy turkey with a hat" and so on. We just used items we had on hand. If you don't have popsicle sticks, just use a piece of sturdy cardboard, and substitute any of the other materials with ones you do have. Our flower is made with a garbage tie, and we used Elmer's all-purpose glue to hold it all together.
