Get your kids excited for Thanksigivng with this easy to make Paper Plate Turkey Craft covered in bright feathers and fun sequins!
Today I had the pleasure of spending time with 18 incredible Kindergartners who love to create and craft just as much as I do. My daughter’s class had an early Thanksgiving celebration and to continue the theme myself and two other moms set up mini activity stations for the kids afterwards. These included learning activities and hands on projects. At my station I was in charge of the Paper Plate Turkey. This little craft was so popular that I decided to share it on my blog as well. During the holidays I really love to use paper plates to create festive decorations so it wasn’t hard coming up with something special for the kids to make. This colorful turkey is SO easy to make and fun to dress up. Perfect craft for home and the classroom.
- white paper plate
- colored construction paper ( yellow, brown, red, orange)
- colored feathers
- set of googly eyes
- sequins, rhinestones, stickers, buttons etc.
1. Use the colored construction paper to make the turkey’s body, beak, feet, and wattle. I free handed each piece but feel free to use a template if you find it to be easier. You can find similar templates floating around on Google and once they are printed all you have to do is trace them onto the construction paper.
