This is a fun and easy Thanksgiving craft that involves creating an adorable Turkey using a potato masher!
Here’s how to make Potato Masher Turkey Craft
Gather your supplies.
Cut out the turkey beak from yellow construction paper and snoods from red construction paper.
Set out your brown paint. I like to either use paper plates, bowls or a paint pallets for easy dipping.
Let your little one dip the potato masher into the paint and stamp the white paper with the brown paint to make the Turkey body.
We did not use glue to stick the beak and snood and eyes of the Turkey on to the body. Instead we put it directly into the wet paint and they stayed once the paint dried.
To guarantee that everything will stick, it is best to wait until the paint dries and them use glue, however, if your little one is like mine and cannot wait that long you can do what we did and stick everything in the wet paint. This is how we do all of our potato masher crafts and they almost always hold once the paint dries.
Add the Feathers
This is the fun part! Where your little one can add the feathers of the turkey however they like using glue.
This was a really fun and super easy to set up craft that is great for Thanksgiving at home or in the classroom!
