How to Make a Paper Bag Turkey
This paper bag turkey craft is really easy to make!
1. First, glue the feathers to the back of the paper bag.
You want the part that flaps up to be in the front for the face.
I recommend a tacky glue or using hot glue (adults to help) for the feathers. You can also use white glue, just make sure you allow a lot of time to dry before trying to pick the paper bag up.
Keep gluing until you fill the back with feathers. Choose any color combination you’d like. Kids can even practice making a pattern with them!
2. Glue on 2 googly eyes.
You can also draw on the eyes on white paper and glue that on.
3. Cut out a triangle for the beak from orange construction paper or cardstock.
Glue the beak below the googly eyes.
Now that turkey is complete, you can have your kids put their hands inside to make a puppet!
My son enjoyed playing with the bag afterwards and we had fun talking back and forth. Make more than one turkey and kids can put on a Thanksgiving puppet show!
