  • Let the kids paint their plates and allow them to dry
  • While that is drying…

Here is some prep work for the adult or older kids to do while the plate dries or before you start the craft…

For each turkey:

  • Cut out a little orange beak from cardstock and a little waddle from the red cardstock
  • Cut a 1″x4″ rectangle piece from the brown cardstock (this is the head and neck of the turkey)
  • Bend the top 1 inch to make the head of the turkey and decorate it with the googly eyes, cut out beak and waddle
  • Cut oval feather shapes from the colorful scrap paper

Now that the plate has dried:

  • Cut 2 small circles toward the bottom rim of the plate for little fingers to fit through 
  • Let the kids glue the feathers you cut out of scrap paper to the back of the plate
  • They can then glue the neck/head to the front
  • That’s it! 
  • Play with your new turkey puppet!

Happy Fall Y’all!
