With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, it’s time for some fun turkey crafts to make your guests smile as they sit back, full of stuffing, and stare into space. This week we had fun creating with our very own Paper Plate Collage Turkey Craft to decorate our doors.
To create your own turkey, with plenty of personality and style, start with a paper plate with a wedge cut out of it. This will become the turkey’s tail feathers.
To decorate the feathers, I pulled out our bag of magazine pictures, stickers, crayons, colored tissue paper, and glue, and we got started making a collage of items to form the colorful feathers.
The preschooler grabbed up every car picture he could find, and a few super hero stickers to fill in the gaps. I love how the turkey reflects his interests.
Once the feathers were decorated, I cut a squash-shape for the turkey body from brown packing paper. The kids glued it to their feathers. We added a beak, wattle, feet, and google eyes to complete our turkeys.
This unique turkey craft will have the guests smiling once they finish their plates this Thanksgiving.
