Shape Turkeys

Toddler Thanksgiving Craft ~ Shape Turkey

Thanksgiving is right around the corner…where did October go?  I am not ready for winter to settle in around us.  In hopes of hanging on to fall a little while longer, we created these simple shape turkeys.  This is a perfect craft for young kids working on shape recognition.

Making turkeys from simple shapes is not a new idea.  However, they are the perfect way to sneak in a little learning while creating adorable crafts with your kids.  Work on simple shape recognition with your toddler.  As an added bonus, this little shape turkeys will look great hanging on your fridge for Thanksgiving.

Googly eyes, construction paper, scissors and glue.  This simple list of materials are perfect for making these little shape turkeys.  I love art projects that are simple and only involve a few supplies when I am crafting with younger kiddos.

  3. Love this idea! We have been spending less time at the computer and tv as of late and more time together as a family – talking, laughing, and creating. I stumbled across your blog while searching for different activities for my kiddos on Pinterest.

    Our favorite Thanksgiving craft is the “Tree of Thankfulness”. We cut a trunk and branches out of brown paper and tape it to the wall, then cut out leaves and write all the things we are thankful for and hang them on the tree. By the end of November is it overflowing with thanksgiving. :)
