Halloween is almost here and we will all be switching gears soon to Thanksgiving! Now whether you are a big Thanksgiving fan or not, it’s fun to sneak a craft or two in for the holiday. This fine motor turkey kids craft can be done by little ones of all ages!
We have used this process before to make rainbow bookmarks and so it was no surprise that V enjoyed doing it again to make some festive turkeys!
What you need for you Fine Motor Turkey Kids Craft:
- Construction paper. Fall colors.
- Googly eyes.
- Contact paper.
- Hole punch.
- White glue.
How to make your Fine Motor turkey Kids Craft:
Start by drawing 5 feather shapes on your contact paper.These don’t need to be perfect, think about a tear drop shape. Next, peel off the backing and secure to a surface with tape. Make sure that it is sticky side up. Taping them to a window or glass door works well to let the light through.Punch a bunch of dots out of your construction paper. Then place the dots inside of the feathers. This is an amazing fine motor activity!Add in dots until you have the feathers filled in.
Now place another piece of contact paper on top of the feathers. (Sticky sides together) Cut apart your paper to make a square around each feather. Press out any air bubbles in your feathers then cut out the design completely. Fan out the feathers and tape them together on the back side. Then add a turkey body! Use scraps of paper from your dots and a couple of googly eyes!
Use white glue or tape to add on your turkey’s body and you are done! This cute little turkey can be placed on a window or on your fridge to add a nice touch of Thanksgiving to any space.
These guys are seriously cute! I hope you give them a try!
