I traced a feather on to 8 strips of paper (4 of each color) and she cut out the feather. We set those aside and she crumpled up newspaper to fill each bag half full. Then we twisted the tops of each bag and secured the large bag shut with a rubber band. Then we slipped the twisted part of the small bag into the rubber band to attach the head to the body.
Then with small pieces of double stick tape she attached the googly eyes, beak (cut from scraps of construction paper), waddle/balloon, and feather.
And what's great about this project is that we had to use very little new products and everything can be recycled (bags, newspaper, & construction paper) or taken off & reused on another project (rubber band, googly eyes & balloon).
For this project we went outside and picked 4 small pinecones off one of our bushes. We also acquired 8 small google eyes, 1 popsicle stick (cut into 4 pieces to be glued on back to prop turkey upright), and 4 pipe cleaners to be cut & shaped to make the feathers, beak, waddle & feet. Oh! And a hot glue gun, so this was a project that mommy had to help with. I would apply the glue & she would stick on the pipe cleaners I had previously cut & shaped (see picture -- click on it to make it larger -- to get an idea of what the shaping looks like.)
She put her four little "baby" turkeys and set them in a picture window next to the paper bag "mommy" turkey. Guess we will have to come up with one more turkey craft so we can have a daddy turkey there too.
