Craft Time

So, I saw this cute turkey craft, and thought it would be fun to make.
We haven't done it yet, but when we do, I will post pictures.
It is a Thankful Turkey.
Brown, red, orange and yellow construction paper
Pencil or marker
Googly eyes (optional)
Printer (optional)
Cut a brown construction paper circle or oval (about 8 inches across) for the turkey's body.
For the head and neck, cut a much smaller circle
and a rectangle from a different shade of brown paper.
Cut two scrawny feet and legs from orange paper.
Glue the head and neck onto the body.
Glue a tiny orange triangle for the beak and a little red blob for the wattle.
Either draw eyes in black or glue on googly eyes.
Glue the legs to the body.
For the turkey's feathers, cut five long ovals - use many colors of coloring paper if you like.
Using white or pale yellow paper, cut five smaller ovals (that fit inside the larger ovals).
Glue the smaller ovals on the larger ones. On each one, write: "I am thankful for __________________." For a
thankful feather template to print, click here.
Have the child write what they're thankful for.
Glue the "feathers" to the back of the turkey.
Don't forget to write the child's name and age on the turkey.
