Turkey Crafts for Kids
Turkey Crafts are lots of fun!!
I love setting them up around the month of November and this one is no exception.
To set up this simple paper plate Turkey craft, here are the steps:
Grab a paper plate and cut the feathers around the top of the paper plate.
Then, cut out turkey legs on the paper plate.
With another paper plate, cut out a circle out of the center of the paper plate.
With glue, place the circle over the turkey paper plate.
Voila! Now it is time to draw eyes, a beak and a girdle.
Set your turkey craft aside.
Grab popsicle sticks and ask your littles what they are grateful for.
Write down their answers onto the popsicle sticks.
Tip: Make sure the popsicle sticks match the amount of paper plate feathers there are.
Add dot marker colors on each of the popsicle sticks.
Then, set out dot markers so that your LO can dot and color the paper plate feathers.
As your LO colors a feather, make sure it is a color of the popsicle stick and read aloud the popsicle stick as you add them!
This is a wonderful way to have fun with a Thanksgiving craft for kids while learning through play and talking about the things you and your LO are grateful for. 🙂
