- Total Time Needed:
- 1 Hour
- Brown paper bags
- Cardboard (cereal box)
- Glue stick
- Colored construction paper
- 2 small white pom-poms
- Black permanent marker
From the brown paper bags, cut a circle 3 1/2
inches in diameter for the turkey's head. Next, cut a 3-inch-wide band
to fit around your child's head.
From the cardboard, cut a strip 5 by 1 1/2
inches to use for a neck. Fold it three times accordion style, then glue
one end to the back of the paper circle.
For a beak, fold yellow construction paper and
cut out a small double triangle (1 1/2 inches along the fold). Cut a
rounded L from red paper for the turkey's wattle.
To create eyes, draw a black circle on each
pom-pom with the marker. Glue the eyes, wattle and one side of the beak
to the head. Let them dry. Then, glue the loose end of the neck to the
center of the headband.
Now, wrap the headband around your child's head;
mark where the ends overlap, then remove the band and glue the ends.
Finally, glue on construction paper feathers and wings.
