Turkey Craft

We are always looking for creative seasonal crafts and kids activities. This Packing Peanut Turkey Craft for Kids is a really fun turkey craft my elementary age son loved making last year with a squash from our garden.

Turkey Craft for Kids

My nine year old was able to stick in his wood skewers by himself.  A preschool or kindergartner could easily do this craft, but help them with sticking the 6-7 skewers in the back of the squash.

Then your child just pushes the dyed packing peanuts over the skewers, filling them to the top.

Aren’t they pretty turkey feathers? And I love that it is a 3D, textured turkey craft.

When your feathers are all complete use glue to attach google eyes and a construction paper beak, wattle, and feet.

This makes such a cute Thanksgiving centerpiece!
