Turkey Craft Fun


Just because Turkey day is fast approaching.

Tonight, at Chick-fil-a family night, there was a craft for the kids.   They made this adorable little turkey, so I thought I would pass on the idea (as I never come up with cute stuff like this).

Mr. Turkey’s body is made up of two styrofoam balls that have been spray-painted brown.  They are held together with a toothpick.

His plumage is well, feathers, that #1 inserted into the back.

Then his beak, “gobbler” and legs are made of pipe cleaners.  Two little ones for the beak, one folded into a “V’” for the “gobbler”, and two for the feet.

To finish him off, two googly eyes!  I’d say it’s a winner.

And a fun Turkey song that my friend Emily taught us (to the tune of Pop Goes the Weasel):

The turkey is a funny bird

His head goes wobble, wobble

All he knows is just one word

Gobble, gobble, gobble.

    The flap of skin that hangs over their beaks is called a snood. The skin that hangs and covers their throats and necks is called a wattle. Oh, the things you learn in kindergarten!!!

    I just have such a hard time imagining going to Chick-fil-a at a separate restaurant…….The only place we have them here is in the food courts……..So no craft for us, but I always love that the kid's meals come with books! (they make great books to carry in my bag!)
