Clip-On Turkeys

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Yellow pipe cleaners
  • Glue
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Clothespin

How to make it:

1. Make a turkey tail by tracing a child's hand: trace just the four fingers (no thumb) onto any color paper—we made ours with a variety of colors.

2. Then design a body shape to glue over the top of the hand shape.

3. Glue wiggle eyes and a wattle. Then attach colorful feathers on top of the "fingers" of turkeys' back. Make legs out of yellow pipe cleaners and tape these onto the back (glue won't hold them on).

4. When you're finished, glue a wooden clothespin crosswise onto the back of your turkey.
