Turkey Kid Craft



On this day before Thanksgiving, I wanted to share a fun & festive project to keep little hands busy and to brighten up the decorations for your feast πŸ™‚  It’s a wonderful sensory activity too working with feathers and glue!  Both of my children (3 and 1) worked hard and were able to make a turkey of their own. 

Here’s what you need:

  • feathers
  • construction paper
  • glue (we used a glue stick and white glue)

For my son who’s 3 I let him use his own glue stick to glue feathers to a piece of orange construction paper.  For my daughter who’s 1 and a half I spread the glue on the paper and let her stick the feathers on.  I cut out brown turkey heads, orange beaks, and red snoods (the skin that hangs from a turkey’s neck).  I let my son glue his face onto the turkey head.  I did this step for my daughter.  Then I glued the heads over the feathers with white glue.  We drew on black eyes.  I think they turned out pretty cute!

I hope all of my American friends are enjoying this prep time for our feasts tomorrow.  There isn’t a holiday that beats Thanksgiving in my mind.  What could be better than too much food, family and friends, a warm home that smells delicious, and a morning snuggling and watching a parade?  All of the best things in life in one day πŸ˜€

Happy Thanksgiving!
