This paper plate turkey craft is a fun activity to do for Thanksgiving!
So far in the Craftulate household we haven’t done many Thanksgiving themed crafts or activities. But as I spend more years in the US and my son grows up – I find that neither of us want to miss out!
For this craft we used:
- Paper plates (we used orange ones but any colour would probably work fine)
- Brown, yellow and red card or felt
- Googly eyes
- Brown pipe cleaners
- Wire cutters
To prepare the craft, cut the paper plates in half and gather the other materials. Start by inviting your child to glue on the feathers. I had prepared my version in advance – it helps my son understand the final result we are aiming for but if he wants to do his own version then I don’t stop him!
Cut the brown card (or felt) into a head and body shape, the yellow card into a beak shape and the red card into a wattle shape. Then have a little giggle to yourself over the word “wattle”. I cut these out in advance for my son, but older children could try cutting out the pieces for themselves.
I think he did really well! Here’s my version:Here's a fun #turkey #craft for kids to make this #thanksgiving ! Click To Tweet
