Yesterday I shared how we explored painting with dough cutters. After we experimented with them a bit we used them to make the feathers on this easy Thanksgiving turkey craft for kids.
We started by using our dough cutters to paint “feathers” on our turkeys.
Each of the kids tried a different approach, some working in a pattern and others working in a more abstract way.
Once the “feathers” were dry we added the turkey body. You can use any shape you like for the body. I took advantage of the opportunity to trace those cute little feet one more year before they start getting too big for me to do so.
Then we added some facial features, and ta da! Festive turkeys to decorate for Thanksgiving.
