Paper Plate Turkey Craft
What we used:
paper plates cut in half, crayons( you could use markers, colored pencils, paint….), glue stick, clothes pins, brown, orange, and red paper, googly eyes (we got ours from craftprojectideas they sent us for free in a goodie box)
What we did:
I traced objects that I found in the kitchen to make 2 sized brown circles. I then cut out a beak and feet from orange paper. Last, I cut out the red to go with the beak.
I let the kids color the paper plates to start while I worked on getting the rest together. Next we glued the circles onto each other. Then we added the eyes and beak. Now we glued the “turkey body” to the feathers (paper plate cut in half). Last we glued the paper legs onto the clothes pins.
Now we had two fun and unique Paper Plate Turkeys to decorate the house with. I took a photo to show you that the turkey stands on the clothes pins. This craft was great for both my 5 yr and 2 yr. My 1 yr (12 mo is a little young but an 18 month old or + would probably be able to help a little with this craft) will have to wait for next year to join in on the fun.
