Kid’s Artwork Turkey

Gather the kids, grab some paint and lets make paper turkeys that stand up!  How adorable are these  just make sure that Grandmother gets one, too!  These turkeys are so easy that any age can help make them.  This turkey pictured here has water colored tail feathers, but if you can get the kids to put their hands in paint.  I love the tail feathers to be hand prints.  Check out the turkey at the bottom.

Materials

  • Turkey template {DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE PDF HERE}
  • scissors
  • glue
  • paint for turkey body brown and paint for tail feather (I used water colors)
  • Card stock, poster board or any heavy type of paper
  • red and yellow paper
  • 2 eyes

Are the kids ready to paint?  Paint the turkey body and strip brown.  Fold strip to make a rectangle, 1″ on top and bottom, 2 1/2″ on the sides (there will need to be a small overlap to glue).

Cut a yellow beak and a red gobble.  Glue on eyes (or paint), beak and gobble.

Glue the center strip to back of turkey body.

Now for the tail.  I ran out of white card stock (due to too many little artists who love to paint) so I used white paper plates (2) and I liked the way it turned out!  When dry cut into feathers, I cut 7.  Cut a half circle shape out of card stock, glue on your turkey feathers.

Glue the tail with feathers to the center strip.

How much fun!  Check out the turkey below with the hand print tail feathers.  Made the same way, just used the hand print for feather.

This turkey pattern can be adjusted, making him smaller or big. If you change the size larger, made the center strip larger so he will stand up.
