T for Turkey

Today's Turkey craft focused on the letter 'T' and it's sound. The kids had a great time with this little guy and it was so simple.

To make this turkey, we used:
Brown, red, orange, white, and yellow Construction Paper

1. First I free-handed the letter 'T' on brown construction paper and used it as a template to trace T's for the rest of the kids.

2. The older kids were able to cut out their own letters, while I helped the younger ones.

3. Then, I cut out white ovals for the eyes and an orange diamond shape (folded in half) for the beak. I also cut out a free-hand red gobbler and orange feet. (See the picture for an example)

4. We used the leftover feathers from some of our other turkey crafts and the kids got started gluing everything together.

When we were finished, we had this little guy to remind us that "T is for Turkey"!!

This activity went along with our reading of Today is Thanksgiving by P.K. Hallinan.  This adorable picture book uses marker paintings and fun rhymes to tell the tale of a traditional Thanksgiving day.
