My girls loved making this turkey today. All you need is brown construction paper, a coffee filter, and some washable markers.
- Cut out a turkey shape from brown construction paper. I traced one that I found online.
- Have your child color a coffee filter with washable markers. It really doesn’t matter how they color it but it will look best if they color most of it and don’t leave many white spots.
- Have them spray the coffee filter with water. This will allow all the colors to run together.
- While waiting for the filter to dry, I had my girls draw a face on the turkey pattern that I cut out. I let Ashlyn cut her own out.
- Once the filter is dry, fold it in half and glue or staple it to the back of the turkey for the feathers. They turn out really cute!
I did a different activity with Emily and I was able to use the same turkey pattern. This time I wrote her name on the front of the turkey and colored it. Then I cut pieces of different color construction paper and wrote a letter on each piece that is in her name. These are the turkey’s feather. Now she has a game to practice how to spell her name. I mix up the feathers and she has to put them back together in the correct order.
