Pipe Cleaner Turkey For a Treat Holder and Thanksgiving Craft

Pipe Cleaner Turkey Treat Holder and Craft for Thanksgiving - KidFriendlyThingsToDo.com

This turkey is so super cute, and easy to do. My six year old had absolutely no problem doing one all by herself! I love that this turkey holds little bags of treats (popcorn, candy,  craft kit, etc…) in the middle. Wouldn’t that be adorable on a kid’s Thanksgiving table? You could even put a place card instead of treats in the middle of this turkey! Here’s how you can make this turkey!

You’ll Need: For Each One

  • 10 (12 in. long) pipe cleaners/chenille strips – you can add 2-4 more for fullness, just make sure that you can still twist them together
  • 2 Google eyes
  • A little orange triangle cut from felt or material for the beak
  • Red Rick-Rack for the gobble – Substitute anything red here!

Now:

  • Stack the pipe cleaners together making sure they are all even at the top, and bottom
