Simple Twig Turkey ~ Thanksgiving craft for kids
Durning our nature walk, the kids gathered a number of twigs. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we decided to create a simple twig turkey craft. Plus, my kiddos love any excuse to use their glue gun.
- Twigs or small sticks
- Glue Gun ~ a low temp glue gun works best for kids
- Oil Pastels
- Paper for eyes and beak
Choose a few of the twigs to use for the feathers and legs. Add a little color by rubbing the twigs with oil pastels. We found it easiest to use the side of the oil pastel.
Using a low temp glue gun, attach the twigs together in a haphazard pattern.
My kiddos love using their glue gun. However, like any tool, its important to talk to them about how to use one properly.
They also used the glue gun to attach the eyes and beak, but you could use white glue.
I love how these little twiggy turkeys turned out.
