Are you looking for a way your kids can help decorate the table for Thanksgiving?
How about a simple paper cup turkey?
For each paper cup turkey, you will need:
- A Paper Cup
- Google Eyes
- Craft Glue
- Construction Paper (to make tail feathers, wings, beak, and, of course, a red waddle)
I had my pieces pre-cut, allowing my preschooler and kindergartner to look at my example and create their own turkeys while I worked on dinner. You could also have your kids cut the pieces out themselves. This way they can get really creative with those turkeys!
We plan on using our paper cup turkeys as a centerpiece for our table next Thursday. They would also make cute place cards by just adding each guest’s name on the cup.
Want some fun turkey facts to share with your little gobblers?
