Turkey Craft Ideas
- Color: This printable would make a great turkey coloring sheet, all you need to do is grab your favourite markers, crayons or even paint. Printing this out would also make a nice simple activity for a group (perfect if you need a moments peace!)
- Make a thankful turkey: Colour in your turkey (or leave it bank, your choice) and then on each feather write or draw something that you are thankful for.
- Cut out the turkey’s body: of course you don’t need to use the whole of the turkey in this printable! Why not cut out the turkey’s body and then use something else to make the feathers? You could use colorful leaves from your garden or use scrap paper to make colorful feathers.
- Paper plate craft: follow our tutorial to make this easy handprint paper paper plate turkey craft.
- Handprints: or skip the paper plate and just make your handprints straight onto paper!
- Gluing feathers: use glue to stick colored feathers onto your turkey.
- Make a paper garland: you could print several of these turkeys and then turn them into a garland for a cheap and simple Thanksgiving decoration, especially if you color them first. Just cut out the turkey shape and then use tape to attach the back of each one to some string before hanging them all up.
- Q-tips: pour a little paint into a dish or plate and then dip a q-tip into it before dabbing it onto your turkey’s feathers to color them in with lots of little dots. You could stick to one color or use different q-tips for different colored dots.
- Painting with feathers; we made these feather painted turkeys a few years back and while the materials were obviously a little different for those you could still dip a feather in some paint before using it to decorate your turkey’s feathers. We found it made a fun alternative to using a paintbrush.
