Simple Turkey Craft for Kids

The great thing about making this popsicle turkey craft is that it takes minimal time but brings maximum fun.

Plus, depending on the age of the kids, they might be able to create this simple Thanksgiving craft all on their own!

It’s always a good idea to sit down next to them and be creative, but make sure to let their imagination fly.

Because once they make their own Turkey Craft for Thanksgiving, they’re going to want to show it off to everyone at the house.

Be sure to follow the simple instructions on the how-to card below to start and complete with any issues.

As you can see from the supply picture above, this simple craft is made using very few supplies.

That’s a good thing – because it means that the kids can start creating sooner!

Where can I buy craft supplies?

Since these are common craft supplies that can actually be used with other crafts, it’s a good idea to keep them on hand.

Buying them online from places like Amazon means that you can have them delivered right to your front door.

If you have a craft store in your hometown, show them love and shop local!

You can also have fun and change the colors of your feathers. I like to use fall colors since this is for Thanksgiving, but there are no rules when it comes to creativity.
