Making turkeys is easy.
First draw a simple face on the peanuts, if you look closely at the peanut you can easily decide where the beak will be. 
Make a beak with the orange marker.

Draw  with the red marker the "wattles" (the red hanging thing under beak) 

Then dots for the eyes .

Make all the faces/heads that you'll need I used an old piece of foam to hold the heads.

 
 That's really cute and creative - using everyday items to make a sparkly turkey!
