Thanksgiving for Kids

In case you missed my guest post on A Glimpse Inside here’s an idea to make it a fun Thanksgiving for Kids.

So here it is, my fun little turkey friend for the kiddos I have lovingly named…

Terrence the Turkey

He may be a little shy at first, but once you get to know him he is a total Butterball.

Supplies needed:

2″ Styrofoam ball
Serrated knife
Brown paint
Foam Brush
5 Crayons
Pointy nosed pen
Brown cardstock
Yellow cardstock
Red Cardstock

1. Slice off the bottom of the ball with a knife so it will sit flat.

2. Paint the ball brown.
3. In the center of the ball, push the pen in to the styrofoam about 1/2 inch to make a holes for the crayons. It has to be in the middle straight to the center or the crayons will tip the ball over.

4. Cut a body shape, beak, and gobble out of the cardstock.

5. Use your knife to make a slit in the styrofoam in front of the crayons to slide the body in.

6. Hot glue the beak on. Cut a tiny slit in the gobble and slide it on to the beak.

Find a nice place for him on the kids table…

or set him free to roam.

    This is so cute. I have a group of young adults with disabilities and I look for crafts they can make and this is definitely going to be our Thanksgiving Turkey this year; thanks for sharing. linda
