Paper Plate Turkey Craft

To begin making this Thanksgiving craft, cut a paper plate in half. Next, use the paint brush to spread glue all over the paper plate until it is completely covered. Then, place the feathers on top and gently press them down so they stick to the paper plate.

While the glue dries, cut the cardboard tube to the size turkey that you want to make. It’s always fun to make different sizes and create a family of turkeys. Next, paint the cardboard tube with the brown paint.
While the paint dries, cut a diamond out of the orange construction paper and fold it in half to make the turkey’s beak. Then, cut an oval out of the red paper for the turkey’s gobbler.

After the paint dries, glue the beak in the middle of the cardboard tube. Next, glue the gobbler next to the beak. Then, glue the googly eyes above the beak. Finally, glue the cardboard tube to the paper plate. If you want your turkey to stand up, make sure that the bottom of the cardboard tube and paper plate line up.
