Love how cute these Thankful Turkeys turned out. It was not just fun for my kids to make, but it made them think about things they are thankful for.
This craft was inspired by the post on 'Craft for all Seasons'. I made it much simpler. To make the Thankful Turkeys you will need One toilet paper tube, Construction paper in various colors, a small piece of red playdoh, brown paint, paintbrush, markers, googly eyes, scissors and glue.
First, the girls started by painting the toilet paper tubes with brown paint.
While the paint dries, I drew feathers on the construction paper for the girls to cut. They both did a great job in cutting the feathers out. Putti's friend chose to use the fancy edge scissors and Putti used the regular one.
Next, both the girls started writing things they are thankful for on their feathers. They were real keen on writing everything just because they loved using my sharpies :)
- Each feather can be written with a word or phrase.
- Each member of the family can make their own to create a family of thankful turkeys.
- At Thanksgiving dinner, you can place one feather at each person's place setting, and they can write what they are thankful for. Later all the feathers can be added to the turkey, which can be used as a table centerpiece.
