Thankful Turkey

From: Crafts-for-All-Seasons


What You'll Need
: Two paper bowls, a toilet paper tube, glue, construction paper, markers, scissors, paint, a paintbrush, toothpicks and a small condiment cup (this will be your turkey's hat!)

How to Do It
: Paint the bowls and toilet paper roll any color you'd like and let dry. Glue the rims of the bowls together, then glue the roll to one of the bowls; this creates the body. Make a face for your turkey by first drawing eyes with marker. Give him a beak by folding a small square of construction paper in half diagonally and then cutting along the line to make the beak 3D! Glue on the beak and let dry. Then, draw a gobbler with a red marker. Trace your kid's handprint to use as the turkey's feet. Cut out feather shapes from the construction paper. Glue the backsides of the feathers, sandwich a toothpick (but keep one end showing) between them, and glue it all together. Have your kids write what they're thankful for on each of the feathers and stick each into the bowls. Trace a circle, wider than the diameter of the condiment cup and cut out (this will be the hat's brim). Glue the cup to the brim and there you go! A very thankful turkey.
