Family Fun: Turkey Poem

Turkey Poem

The turkey is a funny bird,

It's head goes wobble wobble.

And it knows but one word,

Gobble, gobble, gobble.

Hands-and-Feet Turkey
You will enjoy tracing hands and feet to create this one-of-a-kind paper turkey craft for Thanksgiving.

What you'll need:
· Colorful paper or color your own paper
· Scissors
· Glue
· Wiggle eyes (optional)

How to make it:
Step 1 - Trace your hands and feet
1. Trace two feet (with shoes on) on paper.
2. Trace your hand six times on different color paper.

Step 2 - Cut out all the the hands and feet tracings.

Step 3 - Make the Body
Put the two feet tracings together to make the turkey body and head, placing the heels together one on top of another, and spreading the bottoms apart as in the illustration. Glue.

Cut two turkey feet out of the orange scraps, then cut a diamond shape for the beak. Draw the eyes on white paper and cut them out, or use wiggle eyes. Make the wattle out of red construction paper. Glue each piece onto the body as shown.

Step 4 - Attach the tail
You're Done!
