Paper Turkey

Paper Turkey

I am still on my mission to decorate my house for Thanksgiving, but I wanted to do a fun project that my youngest could do too.  Sometimes it is hard to come up with a craft that my 5yr old will like and that my 20month old could do too.  Having two kids so far apart is great in some ways and is a bit of a struggle in others.

But even though it is hard to find just the right project it can be done and these cute paper turkey’s are perfect for any age.  And I am giving you this Paper Turkey Pattern so you can make as many as you and your kids want.

This is actually a perfect craft for Thanksgiving day.  Just print out the pattern and cut out all the pieces from your colored paper and then when the kids start getting restless waiting for food or waiting for the adults to come out of their food coma after dinner, just have them make some Turkey’s.  They need little supervision on this one and it will give them something fun to do.

    Cute turkeys! I used something a bit similar but larger to help my kids be thankful at this time of year.

    Thank you so much! I am a high school Spanish teacher and I needed a simple turkey for the kids to create and write things they are thankful for (in Spanish, of course!) This pattern fit the bill perfectly! My kids will have so much fun…they will think they are back in kindergarten!

      Oh Cherise, I am so glad it will work for you! And I wish my Spanish teacher in High School did fun stuff like this with us! Great idea to use the feathers to write what they are thankful for!
