Thanksgiving will be here soon. Although my household doesn’t celebrate the traditional meaning behind the day, we still have an annual feast with family and friends. Many people eat turkey on Thanksgiving, so I wanted to share this cute turkey craft. This simple paper plate craft is easy for toddlers and young preschoolers to make.
A Paper Plate
A Paint Brush
This paper plate turkey is super easy to make! Start by helping your child paint the paper plate brown.
While the paint is drying, draw feathers onto construction paper. You will need approximately 14 to 16 feathers. After that, draw a triangle for the beak on yellow construction paper and the wattle on red paper.
After all that is drawn, you can either cut the feathers and other turkey parts out yourself or let your little one do the cutting.
Once the paper plate is dry, flip it over and have your child glue on the feathers.
After the feathers dry, turn the plate back over and have your little one glue on the googly eyes, beak, and wattle.
I hope your kids will enjoy making this cute turkey craft as much as my daughter did. Crafting with small children is a great way to spend time together and make memories!
