Although this contains quite a bit of cutting, this is a fun craft that can be made quickly and without much of a mess. Let your kids hide these around the house and make your guests find them for a prize! (Just be sure to count the turkeys before you hide them so you don't find a forgotten one sometime past Christmas!)
Autumn-colored construction paper
Brown pom pom
Paint a paper cup brown.
Turn the cup upside down and glue a pom-pom to the top of the cup for the head.
Cut nine 4-inch leaf shapes from different colors of construction paper. Fold a 1-inch-square piece of orange construction paper in half; cut a triangle shape out of the folded paper for the beak. Using a 2-inch square of red paper folded in half, cut a heart shape to create the turkey's wattle.
Glue the beak and wattle to the pom-pom. Add googly eyes. Glue on the “feathers.”
