Raise your hand if you’ve made a hand print turkey . . . hand print turkeys are fun, and a totally classic Thanksgiving turkey craft. But, if you’d like to step-up your turkey crafts this year, here are eight Thanksgiving Turkey Crafts for kids. (And be sure to check out yesterday’s turkey crafts, too.) These Thanksgiving craft ideas are a great way to include the kids in Thanksgiving preparations, and they’ll be so proud to have their turkeys on display.
Here’s a quick reminder, too – today is the last day you can enter to win three Christmas craft magazines, and a 12” STAK Tree. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow, along with another giveaway for the week ahead. (‘Tis the season of giving, right?)
I think Jill’s Thankful Yarn Turkey is just the sweetest. Your kids can customize their feathers with messages of thanks, and add to the tail all week long. Jill has the tutorial on Create.Craft.Love.
This Crayon Turkey is perfect for the kids’ table during Thanksgiving dinner. While the adults finish their meals, the kids can keep busy coloring. Michelle from A Little Tipsy show you how to make your own Crayon Turkey.
Here’s another turkey that will make a fun addition to the Thanksgiving table. This Turkey Treat Pot is from Michaels. (Note: If you make this cutie, be sure to add a 2″ – 3″ ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam to your shopping list. I noticed that the list of materials left it out.)
Paper crafters, take note of this Paper Loop Turkey from Kellie at Polished to Perfection. Have your kids assemble the paper loops, while you help them create the turkey’s body.
Here’s another turkey craft you can make with your pretty, leftover papers. Or, you can use construction paper like Ginger did at Gingerly Made. Here’s the tutorial.
I’d like to have a couple of these Turkey Treat Holders placed strategically around my house! This guy is so cute, easy, and has treats to share – what’s not to like?
Plaid shares a tutorial to make a goofy-eyed Festive Turkey. You could substitute a classic handprint turkey for the tail feathers, don’t you think?
Here’s one turkey that will not go on the table, though you could hang him in the dining room, or maybe on your front door. You’ll find the instructions for the Thanksgiving Turkey Plaque on StyrofoamCrafts.com.
So, do you remember making handprint turkeys? Or, maybe you still do? Please share.
