These pumpkin turkeys are so much fun to make and a great centerpiece for the Thanksgiving feast table! Also, many of the supplies I used are very easy to find sales on the week before thanksgiving, as Christmas decorations are taking over and the stores are practically giving away the supplies needed!
Supplies needed are as follows;
Silk leaves – fall colored
Foam sheets or cardstock – brown or orange for the body
Small piece of yellow card stock – for the beak
Glue Gun & glue stick
First cut out the body on the foam sheet or card stock. I could not find any brown foam sheets. I used both foam and cardstock paper, so the kids could pick the color they liked best. Cut the red balloon up into small pieces for the gobbler. Fold a small piece of yellow cardstock out and cut small triangles off of it for the beaks. Have the kids pick the colored body they like for their turkey. Have the child use the glue stick to attach the gobbler first, with the beak second, overlapping it. Have the child glue on the googly eyes. An adult needs to use the glue gun for the rest. Use the glue gun to attach the body to the front of the pumpkin. Hot glue three leaves to the back of the pumpkin. Now you have a very fun festive Turkey table top decoration! I got my original inspirations from growingupbilingual.com
