Turkey Craft- Scrapbook Paper/Construction Paper

This morning the boys wanted to do another turkey craft.  I kid you not when I say we have an entire wall of turkey crafts :)… I’ll post a pic of the “Thanksgiving” wall on Facebook!  I see why they don’t want to eat turkey now :).

Here’s The Scoop:

This craft can be done with any kind of paper or even a paper plate if you want.  We just did scrapbook paper because it made them a little more colorful.  I’ve made these turkey’s before using construction paper in all different colors for the feathers- also very cute!  You could also just use white paper and let them color the body brown and decorate the feathers how ever they want!   Do what you can!

YOU’LL NEED:

* Scrapbook Paper, Construction Paper, Typing Paper

*Scissors

*Glue

*Google Eyes OR Black Marker/Crayon

*Tissue Paper or red paper for “waddle”

DIRECTIONS:

1.  Cut out a circle shape for the body… I trace an ice cream bucket lid :).

2.  Cut out a beak and feet…  Older kids can do this on their own…

3.  Cut strips of paper for the feathers.  I cut about 1 inch strips…

4.  Roll the strips of paper around a pencil or your finger.  Once you/your kids get a hang of it you won’t need the pencil!  My boys had a blast rolling and re-rolling and re-re- rolling…

5.  Glue him all together!

TADA…
