I volunteered a few days ago at the boys school. That day they were making turkeys. They turned out really cute and were so easy. I liked them so much that when we got home we made them again. They will become our decorations for Thanksgiving. Since I liked them so much I thought you might too.
Here’s what you will need to make them.
white coffee filters
spray bottle with water in it
construction paper in red,blue,orange and brown
glue(stick glue works best. We tried the liquid glue and it bled through the coffee filter)
1.Color your coffee filter on one side with markers. It doesn’t have to be neat, just use what ever colors you want and fill most of the space on the filter.
2. When you are finished coloring place your colored filter on the paper plate and spray lightly with the water. It should be wet but not floating in water.
3. Allow to dry(it doesn’t seem to take too long). All the colors will run together. This is what you want.
4. While the filter is drying you can cut out your pieces for your turkey’s feet, eyes, beak, gobble(or wattle, whatever you call it) and body.
5. Once the filter is dry, glue the turkey body to the filter. Then glue on the other pieces.
We plan on hanging ours from the light above the table with some clear string.
Are they not just the cutest things? Let me know if you made them and how they turned out.
