With our Halloween decorations all made and hanging in our windows, we decided to get a head start on a few Thanksgiving projects!
Now, I don’t know what it is about flower pots, but it seems that in our house, we rarely use them for actual flowers 🙂
They are just so much fun to craft with that we really can’t resist! And this Thanksgiving turkey craft for kids was no different.
To make one of these adorable little guys of your own, you’ll need:
- Flower Pot (if you can find a brown one, then you’re all set but if not you can just paint it like we did)
- Red and Orange Foam or Construction Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Brightly Colored Craft Feathers
- Either Tacky Glue or a Hot Glue Gun
Give your turkey a fun little face with your googly eyes and craft foam. This is perfect for practicing those scissor skills if your child is old enough for scissors but if not, just go ahead and cut those out yourself ahead of time and have your child glue them on.
Now, on the opposite side of your flower pot, give your turkey a brightly colored tail with some fun feathers!
This is a great time to work on colors if you’re adding lots of different ones or even patterns if you’re only working with a few.
Now, sit back and enjoy your adorable little gobbler! Use him as a centerpiece on the Thanksgiving table or just as a decoration around the house. Either way, it doesn’t get much cuter!
