Thanksgiving is the season of remembering to give thanks for what we have. It is also the season of turkey. Not just to eat but to craft! Turkeys have to be one of the easiest animals to craft and there are so many different methods to craft them. However, now I am getting ahead of myself. Today I will show you one easy turkey craft that my girls completed this week! It was fun and needed only a tad bit of parental help. This amazing craft is called the turkey bag.
What you Need:
orange and red construction paper
What to do:
- Open the bag up. Take the newspaper and rip it up and form little balls.
- Stuff the “turkey” or paper bag with newspaper balls. Only full enough that he sits up but that you can still fold over the top.
- Fold over top and staple close
- Have child glue on feathers where you just stapled. (I reinforced with more staples)
- Have child glue on eyes.
- With the orange and red paper create your beak and wattle (the red part). To make the beak just cut off the corner of orange paper. For the wattle just cut out a squiggly oval.
- Glue on the beak and wattle!
- Enjoy your turkey creation.
See? Not that hard. Easy and great for a thanksgiving decoration. These can go right next to the yummy pies at the table.
