A Turkey To Be Thankful For



  • ~ Construction paper in autumn colors
  • ~ Safety scissors
  • ~ sticks
  • ~ Googley eyes
  • ~ Red curling ribbon


  • ~ Trace the child's foot on a piece of brown construction paper. Have the child cut out this piece if able. This will be the body of the turkey.
  • ~ Trace the child's hand on a stack of 4 autumn colored pieces of construction paper. An adult can then cut all 4-hand prints out at once. The child can glue these "feathers" onto the back of the turkey's body.
  • ~ From a scrap of yellow paper, cut a small square. Fold the square over to form the beak.
