‘Tis the season for turkey talk! We think it’s safe to say that, while wild and farm-raised turkeys certainly have their purpose, the turkeys of the craft world might win out in the cute department. Our newest craft is inspired by the November season and our ongoing obsession with colorful fall décor.
As you can see in our step-by-step video, this turkey is an easy one for all ages, especially those who have mastered the fine motor skill of scissor use! (If not, no worries, a parent or older child can help with this part.) The base for our turkey is an empty toilet paper roll, which gives its belly a curved edge and helps it to stand proud.
Grab the following supplies to get started:
Now, it’s time to assemble your upcycled turkey:
Ta-da! That’s it, you did it!
Now, find a good place to display your turkey. Maybe it can even be used as the centerpiece while you gobble up your next family meal. (See what we did there?) We genuinely hope your handmade turkey inspires a nice conversation with your little ones about thankfulness and gratitude.
What are you most grateful for?
