Google doodle celebrates Thanksgiving with create your own hand turkey

Gobble! Gobble! Google has started celebrating Thanksgiving early with this fun interactive doodle. It looks like one of those hand turkeys we made in elementary school.

Straight from the turkey’s, er, Willie Real, Doodler’s mouth:

“Creating hand turkeys remains one of my favorite elementary school memories — glue on the table, colorful feathers stuck to your sleeve and glitter everywhere. This year, you have the option to skip the actual mess involved with making these classic Thanksgiving decorations and craft a unique turkey from the comfort of the Google homepage.

“Whether you want to customize the headpiece, feet or individual feathers — or just prefer a random surprise by pulling on the turkey’s wing — there are many ways to show off your creativity.”

Have fun! Go ahead. Click on the feet (get different shoes), hair, eyes and feathers. Here’s the one I did.
