I’ve seen so many cute crafts for Thanksgiving and today I decided to let Cheyenne make a Paper Tube Turkey after she got home from Mother’s Day Out.
I gathered all the supplies: Paper plate, toilet paper tube, 2 googly eyes, paints (we used brown, orange, red and yellow), glue and scissors.
First, Cheyenne painted the tube brown for the body of her turkey. I was pleasantly surprised by how well she did. I was expecting paint all over the place and just patches of paint on the tube, but she did a great job all by herself. I just had to smooth out a couple of spots where she got the paint a little thick.
Then we had to take a break because it was time for me to fix dinner and our turkey body needed to dry.
When we got back to work, I cut the paper plate in half and set out some red, yellow and orange paint. She painted the paper plate a beautiful medley of red, yellow and orange.
I put two dots of glue on our dried turkey body and Cheyenne put the googly eyes on.
Then I put some glue on the back of the turkey body and down the center of the paper plate and Cheyenne glued the body to the feathers. I think it turned out pretty cute and she is so proud of her turkey craft. Cheyenne is really getting into crafts now and she is getting better at it and better at doing specific tasks for each project.
Let me know if you get a chance to do this cute craft and how your little one enjoyed it.
