Tonya here… Fall is officially here and so begins the holiday season. If you are looking for a fun fall treat that’s perfect for classroom gifts or decorating your mantel and Thanksgiving table, these Turkey Treats are an easy fall craft and a perfect project to make with your kids.
As you can see I’ve made two versions of these, one filled with candy, and one filled with breakfast cereal. How fun it would be for the kids to come in for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning and have a turkey full of cereal, a bowl, spoon, and a drink waiting for them. What a great way to kick off the holiday.
What you need:
- Clear holiday ornaments (available at craft stores)
- Scrapbook paper in assorted colors
- Googly eyes
- Colored pen or Sharpie
- Treats – such as candy, pretzel bites, chocolate covered raisins, breafkast cereal, and more.
These turkey ornaments a quick and easy to make, and older kids who can use scissors will be able to make them for their friends, or make enough to place on the Thanksgiving table filled with treats for after dinner.
The first step is to wash, dry, and fill your ornament with whatever treats you decided on.
Then, you need to add the face using scrapbook paper, glue, and googly eyes.
The final step to make these turkey treats is to add feathers. Here’s a tip, cut one out, and then use it as a template for cutting out all of the others. Take a pen or marker and draw lines on them to make them look more like feathers. And then, attach them to the back of the turkey with glue.
