Paper Plate Turkey

What You Need:

Paper plates



Markers, crayons or colored pencils

Optional: leaves, acorns, goofily eyes and glue

What to Do:

1. For each turkey, you need one paper plate. Place your hand in the center of the paper plate, spread out so your fingers are separated. Trace your hand with a pencil. If you need help doing this, ask a parent or older sibling to trace.

2. Carefully cut out the hand on the plate. The thumb is the head of the turkey and the fingers are its feathers. Fold the thumb towards the middle so that the "head" is in the middle of the "feathers".

3. Use markers, crayons or colored pencils to color your turkey. Be sure to include eyes on your thumb so your turkey can see.

4. If you're feeling very creative, use leaves or acorns on the fingers for feathers and paste googly eyes on the turkey. You may need to use two plates for that to support everything.
