Gobble - Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving
A fun paper craft to do this week with your kids, grandchildren and your friends.
Gobble ~ Gobble

Egg Carton
Card Stock
Construction Paper

Using the card stock as your bottom paper, cut a body shape of a turkey out and glue on card stock. Cut two of the egg carton out and shape into eyes. Cut out small pieces of paper to highlight the inside of your eyes.
Cut out of construction paper all the other parts of the turkey. The feathers, the feet, the waddle and the beak. 
Glue and create your turkey as you like.


I created this idea to do with our Sunday School class this week. We teach 2nd and 3rd grade. They loved it.
Another idea, is to add some thankful thoughts to your feathers.

  1. Cute. I bet the kids had fun making those. Happy Thanksgiving! xxx ~ Nancy

  2. So adorable. Great craft for kids! Happy Thanksgiving,

  3. Great idea for the kids for helping them understand about being thankful.
    I bet they can think of a lot of things that they are thankful for to write on the feathers.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. This is very cute and thankful feathers would be a good idea too. When I was younger, I helped with the first grade Sunday School and the youth choir. Lots of precious memories from those days.
