Paper Turkey-Thanksgiving Craft Project

Thanksgiving Craft Project

Bored? Need activity to do with your kids? Then grab a few materials and make a construction paper turkeys to use as decorations for Thanksgiving :)

Materials Needed:
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie or Pen
  • Something with a straight edge (ruler, I used a piece of scrap paper)
  • Glue/glue stick (glue stick would probably work better)

1. Grab a red, orange, and yellow (and brown if you have it) piece of construction paper

2. Place the paper in a stack

3. Trace your hand out on the top piece of paper, towards the bottom so you can use the extra space of the scrap paper.

4. With the pieces of paper still stacked cut out your hand print

5. Fan out and arrange your hand prints (I spread out so 2 of my thumbs were facing right and one left)

6. Glue them together, just a few dabs on the palms would work

7. Cut out, what would be the turkeys body, a cylinder hourglass shape (use the extra space at the top of the red left over paper)

8. Glue the body to the center of the top hand print

9. Cut a tiny triangle of yellow for the beak and glue it to the center of the upper part of the hourglass

10. Cut out what will be the feet using the yellow paper and glue them to the bottom of the hourglass

11. Cut the gobbler thing out of the red paper

12. Use the pen or marker to draw eyes, make feathers (this is where I used the straight edge), and I used it to outline the gobbler thing and the body, since I did red on red.

And your done, below is an example of what the finished product looks like, results may very depending on your kids ages, lol. Have fun :)
