Candy Wrapper Turkey ~ Simple Thanksgiving craft
Wondering what to do with all that left over candy from Halloween? Make Candy Wrapper Turkeys of course! The kids candy buckets are still over flowing with Halloween candy. We don’t eat much candy in our house, so we need to find creative ways to use it. Candy wrappers are designed to be appealing with their bright colorful logos, which make them a fun material to create with.
Candy Wrapper Turkey:
- A pile of candy wrappers. We sorted ours by color.
- A cereal box – It was the base for our turkeys. We simply flipped it over to the neutral brown side.
- White Glue
- Googly eyes
Start by cutting apart your candy wrappers. Once you get a large pile of colorful wrappers cut up, begin creating your turkey.
I love that this silly turkey has one big eye and one little eye.
They each had their own way to create a turkey. This candy wrapper turkey was made by using lots of smaller pieces of wrappers. More like a mosaic.
The girls traced a template to make the body of their turkeys. I love the feathers.
These little turkeys just go to show that you don’t need to send lots of money on crafts. These little turkeys were built completely out of things that we normally would throw out! I love cute free crafts!
