How To Make A Paper Turkey
Paper turkeys are simple craft decorations to make for the Thanksgiving holiday. Yes, you can even make several paper turkeys and have a puppet show so your feathered friends can "gobble, gobble" at each other at the table, but some people might consider that bad table manners! So before your Thanksgiving Day meal begins, I suggest you run around the house and look for some used computer paper or any used paper with a blank side will do. I am all about the environment-friendly crafts, so I insist on using the blank side of paper if you can do it! Now all you have to do is trace around your hand on the blank side of the paper to make the turkey decoration. You can use markers, colored pencils, or crayons to decorate your hand tracings, and the fingers on these will be the feathers of the turkey. Cut out your papers turkeys when you are done, and it is time to gobble down some Thanksgiving dinner. Gobble, gobble! Also, paper turkeys are vegan-friendly, which is something that appeals to me since I started eating a plant-based diet.
Here is a video I made about how to create a paper turkey decoration for Thanksgiving. Gobble turkey starring in this video is the same paper turkey that I made for this craft tutorial. You could even make several paper turkeys and have a puppet show as I suggested earlier, but many people might not like that at the table.
