Craft Turkey

by April Conway, Staff Writer

Thanksgiving is a time for thanks, food, football, and family. And if your family is anything like mine, there are a lot of children to look after. This fun and easy turkey craft will keep everyone’s minds and stomachs occupied while the real turkey is cooking.

What you need:

Scissors

Glue Stick

Pencil

Ruler

One 2 inch by 10 inch brown strip of paper (for the body)

One 1 inch by 6 inch tan strip of paper (for the head)

Multiple 1 inch by 6 inch colored strips of paper (for the feathers)

Markers

Googly Eyes

Directions:

Take the brown paper, and cut a 2 inch by 10 inch strip. Connect both ends of the strip together, to make a loop, with glue. This will form the body of the turkey. Then cut out a 1 inch by 6 inch tan strip. Connect both ends of the strip together, to make a loop, with glue.

After this is done, take any color paper you would like to use for the feathers (e.g., purple, orange, and yellow) and cut out seven 1 inch by 6 inch strips. Glue them together, in a fanned shape, and then glue the final product to the back end of the turkey’s body.

Cut out feet from left over yellow paper, glue googly eyes on the head, and add facial features as needed.
