For a different take on the typical hand-traced turkey craft, have your kids construct this easy 3D turkey, featured on Spoonful, and developed by Amanda Formaro. They suggest you have your kids, ages 6 and up, make a bunch of these cute turkeys and use them as place settings, doubling as festive decorations.
What you’ll need:
Amanda offers some alternatives for the tail feathers: one suggestion is to keep the paper you use to protect your work surface, and just paint more colours onto the the already-somewhat-painted paper. If you want a quicker and less messy option, the feathers can also just be made using solid-colour construction paper, in brown, orange or red. On the other spectrum of things, if you want “fancier” turkeys, there is always the option of using actual feathers for the tails.
