How to make a turkey puppet

Step 1:

1. Cut out the pieces for the turkey from the PDF template. If it’s the full color template that you’re using, just use those pieces to craft. If you prefer to make it from construction paper, trace the parts onto the appropriate colored papers and cut that out.

2. Glue the wings on either side of the body. Glue the wattle and beak on the face.

3. Glue the head onto the body.

4. As your body dries, begin assembling your feathers. Simply glue the two ends of the paper strips together to form a teardrop, as pictured. Don’t crease your fold. If you’d like you can gently bend it to hold a flatter shape – the choice is yours! Fold enough to make your turkey feathers and tail!

5. When your body is dry and set, attach your feathers to your turkey. Start with the center one.

6. Continue adding feathers to each side of the center one on the back of your turkey body until you are satisfied.

7. Finish it off with a popsicle stick to hold your puppet. Gobble gobble!
