These turkey’s are a perfect kids craft because they’re easy to make and don’t require a lot of supplies. This craft would be great for students as well as toddlers and preschoolers. We made this craft with a group of kids aged three to seven and all of them enjoyed creating their own Thanksgiving turkey.
Here’s a supply list for everything you need to make these fun little turkey’s and an easy tutorial explaining how to make a cute and fun turkey craft idea for kids
- Wooden rounds (one big and one small)
- Paint in brown, yellow, red and orange
- Googly eyes
- Fall leaf
- Yellow felt
- Hot glue gun with glue
Firstly, paint the wooden rounds brown, a small one for the head and a larger one for the body. While the kids are painting their turkey’s cut the yellow felt into small triangles to use as beaks.
Secondly, using the hot glue gun, glue the small wooden round onto the bigger one. You can also use crafting glue for kids to do the glueing themselves. Next glue the eyes in place and the felt beak. Finally, glue the big fall leaf to the back of the turkey body.
