    Paper Plate Turkey Craft

    Paper Plate Turkey Craft

    My kiddos and I love making crafts together for each holiday. For our most recent Thanksgiving craft, my daughter and I made a turkey using paper plates, paint, and construction paper.



    1. Paint the inner circle of the paper plate brown.
    2. Paint the outer circle of the paper plate in small sections of red, orange, and yellow.
    3. Cut a small triangle from the yellow paper and a wiggly shape from the red paper.
    4. Glue two wiggle eyes to the top center of the brown circle.
    5. Glue the yellow triangle under the wiggle eyes with the point pointing down.
    6. Glue the red wiggly shape to the side of the yellow triangle.
