Every year for Thanksgiving I try to find ways of keeping the kids busy while creating new memories and even keepsakes for years to come. Last year we made some fun Thanksgiving placemats and we continue to make it one of the fun activities we do to prepare for Thanksgiving. This year we are added to our cool kids table activities and making Turkey Coasters- a fun entertaining thanksgiving kids craft!
To make a Turkey Coaster you will need:
-Foam sheets in black and brown- adhesive one work great for little hands and the
-pipe cleaners in green or brown
-multi color feathers
I love shopping for all my supplies at Walmart. I find my foam adhesive sheets in various colors and even discovered these cute die shaped men which were perfect head size for our craft.
Let’s make a turkey coaster!
You will need 3 foam circles 1 at least 2 inches in diameter (here is where those gingerbread looking men came in handy the head size was perfect for our craft and easy to cut off for the 2inch head) You will also need 2 circles the same size approximately 4inches in diameter this will be the body and where the cup rests on the turkey coasters.
Glue the brown head to the black body and add the wiggly eyes.
Remove the sticky back and add your feathers they should start sticking.
Add the pipe-cleaner cut in half and fold so this makes the legs.
Remove the adhesive backing from the second black circle and add it to the back sticky side to sticky side.
TIP: Add a little tacky glue to your feathers and pipe-cleaner before adding the sticky back. This will secure your feathers if they are on the heavier side.
Using feathers cut out a long strip in red and a triangle in yellow. This will make the beak and gobbler for your turkey face.
Make this craft with the kiddos during your holiday gathering Or use them as coasters/place settings by personalizing with the name of your little guests.
We hope you enjoy making them as much as we did!
