These 28 Thanksgiving Turkey Projects are fun for the kids and for the home! Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where you can do a cute turkey craft with the kids and then use it as Thanksgiving decor or on the Thanksgiving dinner table! The more handmade the better! It’s all about being with family and enjoying the day together! There are a few edible turkey food crafts here too!
These easy-to-make turkeys are made with just cupcake liners and brown pom poms! Items you can find at your local dollar store! With the holiday season near they should carry more festive colors of the cupcake liners and craft supplies.
Gratitude and being thankful are key to this turkey craft for the kids. The bright colors and even practicing writing will help them with this craft. Each feather says one thing the kids are grateful (or thankful) for this holiday season. Glue the feathers to the back of the paper plate and make your turkey body to attach.
Much like the gratitude turkey from above, this toilet paper roll craft is based on finding what the kids are thankful for. Re-use toilet paper rolls and you can even use scraps of paper to make this an even more frugal craft idea. Check your dollar store for construction paper too!
Use up scrap cardstock or construction paper with this Thanksgiving turkey craft! You can pre-cut pieces for smaller children and let the bigger kids cut and fold their own tail feathers for their turkey!
Easy to make turkey project craft, this turkey features just solid colored black and white tail feathers with a brown body. Buy the solid colors in bulk to help save money (if you're buying for larger groups of kids).
A super-frugal turkey craft idea, these clothespin turkeys are made with regular clothespins, old newspaper or book pages, construction paper, and google eyes. Most if not all of these items can be found at your local dollar stores!
This turkey craft might be for the tad older kids (around 2nd grade+) but you can cater it to smaller kids too. You'll need plastic spoons, paint, google eyes, and construction paper. The kids can have fun decorating the spoons (which will become the tail feathers) and adults can stick everything together when it's time to finish.
These adorable turkey snack bags are perfect for little kids! You'll need plastic gloves, pretzels, and some sort of colorful snack to use for the feathers. Add pipe cleaners for the feet (and use it as the twist tie for the gloves) and add a beak and eyes and it's done!
Use smaller mason jars to store your gift in like a sugar scrub! Use construction paper or felt to create the turkey face and tail feathers. Attach with a glue gun or sticky dots and your Thanksgiving gift is done!
Another way to use leftover paint chips, use Fall festive colors and grab a bag of Reese's Pieces as well as small food storage bags. Add your candy and seal closed. Attach to the "tail feather" chips and give away!
Upcycle (recycle) old cans into festive turkeys! You'll need ribbon, google eyes, and brown paint, as well as your old cans for this DIY Thanksgiving decor idea. Have fun and create something unique to hang up!
If you already have a brown front door this decor idea just got way easier for you! If not, you'll need brown paper to complete your turkey door! Make your turkey eyes with paper plates and construction paper!
Combine a mason jar with construction paper to create these turkeys. Add in a battery-operated tea light candle for some lighting and use as table decor!
