Turkey Pumpkin Craft Directions

This craft is super easy and doesn't take too many supplies. 

  1. Use your construction paper to create a turkey face.
  2. From the brown paper, cut a peanut shape.
  3. With the yellow paper, cut a rounded triangle shape for the beak.
  4. Last, use the red paper to cut a little oval to be the wattle.
  5. Glue all your shapes together to create your turkey face. While that dries a bit, it's time to move on to creating the "feathers" out of leaves.
  6. Glue several leaves on the back of your turkey to make his tail feathers. I used 4 leaves total (2 large and 2 smaller leaves).
  7. Now that you have your turkey "feathers" glued to the back, glue your turkey face to the front and viola!
  8. Alternate with the red and yellow, or whatever color leaves you have to give it more variety.

Crafting Tips

Kids always love using scissors so I let mine use their safety scissors to cut the larger peanut shapes while I cut out the smaller shapes. 

I found these gorgeous gold glittered fall leaves at Michaels. They were a little bit more than the regular leaves but I just loved their colors and the bling of the glitter. You have a cute mini turkey pumpkin craft to display this Thanksgiving!
