1)Large construction paper like this SunWorks Construction Paper, 12″X18″, Smart-Stack Assortment, 150 Sheets

3)Crayons like these Crayola Crayons 24 ct (Pack of 2)
4)Colored pencils like these Crayola Colored Pencils, 50 Count, Adult Coloring

Step 1: Get in your cabinet and use two different size bowls or cups for the head and body and trace with a pencil both of your sizes.
Step 2:Cut out both size circles.
Step 3:Hand draw your feathers for your turkey. (This might take you a couple of tries to get the right sizing but it doesn’t have to be perfect.
Step 4:Fold your construction paper as many times as you can for your feather to fit on. Trace your original feather and cut all at once to save time. After this step your children can start coloring their feathers if they are doing a specific “type” of turkey.
Step 5:Cut out hats for your turkeys. Again these are hand drawn and far from perfect. After this step your children can start to color on their hats.
Step 6:Cut out beaks for your turkeys.
Step 7: Start gluing your turkeys to your construction paper. As you see I have a large piece of cardboard that we use over and over for our crafts. This has reduced my anxiety for keeping things clean while they color and glue. We used to use a sheet but we have found that the cardboard is much easier for not leaking and storing in the garage is so much easier with no washing needed after.
