2. For the feathers we painted card stock paper red, orange and yellow. Then we used the same paint to splatter the different paint colors on each sheet of paper. You can imagine how much fun this is for kids. Just make sure you do this step outside or cover your table with newspaper because it gets messy.
Here is up close of what our paper looked like after painting it. You could use just colored card stock for the feathers if you want, we just wanted to incorporate a fun painting activity into our craft.
3. After the paint on your tissue box is completely dry, cut out a bowling ball type of shape out of brown card stock for the turkey head and body and glue it to the tissue box.
4. When your painted sheets of cardstock are dry, trace a feather shape on the back of them. Cut them all out.
5. Glue the feathers around the back of the tissue paper box and then use packaging tape to secure them at the back.
6. To finish the turkey, glue on some wiggly eyes, a beak made out of a diamond shape bent in half, and a red wattle.
Place a stack of thankful cards next to your turkey, and every day or every couple of days you and your family members can write what you are thankful for and place it in the box.
Hope you have a month full of Thanks!!
