Turkey Hat Thanksgiving Craft

Happy Thanksgiving from my little “Turkey”. Peyton came home with this cute Turkey Hat Thanksgiving Craft from school and I just had to share it with you!

Turkey Hat Thanksgiving Craft

Not only is he so cute wearing it he was so proud of it!  This would be perfect for little ones to make on Thanksgiving Day or at a Thanksgiving Party.

So simple to make out of a 1/2 of a paper plate, construction paper and tempera paint.


  • White Paper Plates
  • Construction Paper
  • Tempera Paint
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue


Measure a strip of paper about 3 inches to use as a headband.  Then add a circle for the turkey head and cut out a beak and gobbler.  Finally add squiggly eyes.  Add 1/2 paper plate and paint the feathers.  Finally add 2 orange legs and accordion fold.  So easy to make and so much fun for the kids to wear!

Perfect for when you are COOKING the Thanksgiving Feast and need something for the kids to do to keep them busy and out of harms way.  Not only that but you will be fostering learning at the same time.  One idea is to set up a craft and learning station in your garage or basement so the kids can stay entertained and out of the way while you are busy cooking. Don’t have a garage or basement, no worries, find any free space or tuck them into the corner of the kitchen if necessary.  Put tons of supplies out on a table and be sure to cover the table with newspaper or a plastic table cloth.  You may need to cover the floor too.  Pick up plastic tablecloths at the dollar store and then let them express themselves. Let the kids create some amazing Thanksgiving themed crafts and work on these worksheets and coloring pages while you are working on the meal.

Here are some Thanksgiving Craft Ideas to keep the kids busy crafting while you are cooking.  I would suggest assigning some older teens to watch over and assist the kids if possible.
