Kids will love this Thanksgiving turkey craft, because they use their own hands and feet to make it. To kick it up a notch, glue three turkeys together at their corners to create a fun, triangular table centerpiece.
Time needed: 30-45 minutes
Approximate cost: $0.50
- A few pieces construction paper or card stock (suggested: red, orange, yellow, green, brown, white, black)
- 1 set googly eyes
- Glue stick
- On 1 or 2 pieces of brown construction paper, trace feet. (Go around the toes – not between.) Cut the feet out and glue them together at the heels, with the toe area facing outward. This is the turkey’s body.
- Trace your hands on several pieces of colored construction paper. Cut them out, arrange them in a fan of feathers, and glue them to the turkey’s body.
- Using the remaining construction paper, cut out legs, a beak, and a snood/wattle. Affix them to the turkey. Then, finish the face off with the googly eyes, and you’re done.
