This is a great Thanksgiving Craft! Lead this craft by putting some general things you are thankful for on your feathers first.  Your kids are sure to come up with some great ones!

1. Trace a circle on brown card stock, then cut it out for the body of the turkey.

2. Cut out turkey feathers by hand, or from an online template. Print the feathers on five different colors of card stock. The kids can cut out the feathers, or you can do it for them!

3. Using a glue stick glue the card stock feathers to the back of the body by fanning out the feathers.

4. Write what you are thankful for on each feather.

5. Cut out a triangle for the beak from the orange paper and glue to the body.  Glue googley eyes to the body and a small piece of red tissue next to the beak for the gobbler/wattle.

6. Glue feathers to the back of the paper feathers.
