With all the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving, it’s a good time to keep crafts simple. And we love our Paper Turkey Craft. It’s as simple as cut and paste with our Free Printable Turkey Template.
You can definitely make these turkeys your own, though. Not only can you draw your turkey’s face, but you can also make his feathers any color you’d like. Go for traditional fall colors of orange and browns, or make the feathers wild like a rainbow.

Thanksgiving Turkey Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin by printing the template. Cut out all the pieces.
Trace the pieces of the template on your chosen colors of cardstock. You will need colors for the feather base, feathers, head, body, wings, beak, snood and feet. Cut out all the pieces.
Attach the feet pieces to the bottom side of the body base cutout. Also, glue the snood near the bottom side of the head cutout, slightly away from the middle.
Then, glue the beak cutout near snood. And glue the head piece to the body piece.
Now, begin gluing the feathers to the feather base.
Continue filling the feather base with feather cutouts.
Attach the feather piece to the back of the turkey.
Use a sharpie to draw the eyes of the turkey.
Such a fun, simple Thanksgiving craft that the kids are going to love to make and the adults will think are adorable.
