1. Begin with a 6X12 piece of brown contruction paper. Glue on one end to make a cylinder. Hold until sealed. You may have to hold longer than expected.
2. Next, take some different colored contruction paper around 6X4.5 inches. Have the kids trace their hands and cut out.
4. Make eyes using white paper and a black crayon.
5. Use orange paper to make the beak and feet. Glue everything on according to the picture.
2. This one all you need is a copy of a turkey. I tried to scan my copy, but my scanner stinks! Anyways, the kids can decorate it with things they can find around the house: rice, beans, seasonings, feathers, fabric, popcorn, etc. The only criteria is that the kids have to be creative!
3. There's always the turkey made out of a pine cone. All you need for this project is feathers, brown construction paper, red pipecleaner, moving eyes, and a popsicle stick broken in two and colored orange for the feet.
I shared an idea last month with the Halloween Activities called, "Don't eat my Halloween". This is another version for Thanksgiving called, "Don't eat my Turkey". You can find the rules to play in the October Archives under Halloween Activites.
