Now that Halloween is over, it’s time for a little Tom Turkey in our lives. Em had a playdate and she insisted that one of the things she wanted to do was a craft, so we decided to do have one ready and waiting for the girls when her friend arrived. She chose to make Coffee Filter Turkeys, using watercolors to paint the tail. Super cute!
I laid out two pieces of construction paper and cut out a turkey body, turkey feet, a beak, and a turkey “snood” (which I just discovered is what that red dangly thing is) for each girl.
The website where I found this used markers to color in the turkey tail (dipped in water afterward) but Em didn’t want to do that. She loves painting coffee filters with watercolors so she couldn’t pass up an opportunity to do it again. She had a vision–she wanted to paint her turkey tail in a rainbow. I love this sweet girl so much.
After the “tail” dries, glue it onto the construction paper, leaving room for the body and feet.
Then assemble your turkey and add some eyes. Color some in or add googly ones!
Then step back and be thankful for easy but adorable crafts like this!
