Gobble Gobble Gobble.  Thanksgiving is almost here!  One of my all time favorite crafts for this time of year is the Toilet Paper Roll Turkey.  I look forward to making it every year!  

You’ll need

  • Several different colors of paint
  • Paper plates
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Orange construction paper 

I put together several parts of this craft for the kids but, as always, it’s up to you how much of the craft they do themselves.  I painted the toilet paper rolls and cut out the beaks ahead of time and then the kids got to paint the half paper plates however they wanted.  They needed a little guidance on painting the white areas and not mixing all the colors in one spot, but all in all they turned out really well!

After the plates dry, glue the toilet paper roll in the center leaving some plate showing at the top.  This is the turkey body.  Then add the eyes and beak and you’ve got yourself a Thanksgiving Toilet Paper Roll Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
