Paper kid's thanksgiving craft: Fun Sitting up Turkey

Teacher, parents and Kids Sunday School Craft Instructions
MAKE A SIT-UP BLUE BRAID-LEG TURKEY

 

Our Turkey is fashioned after the real Gould blue turkey with long legs, but you can make it any colors.

It's an all paper turkey - even the faux braid-legs!

2 Complete sets of pieces - all colored or a turkey set to color.

A photo of the Arizona Blue Gould Turkey is at the end of this page.

Blue Braid-leg turkey

Simple cutting - and good for not-so-careful cutters.

Easy coloring - or pre-colored version.

Does take some time, so if your time is short, you can do this over 2 Sundays, cutting and prepping through instruction #10 on one Sunday, and glue assembly on another Sunday.

The instructions are available in a separate word document download.

1 Chronicles 16:34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Psalms 106:1 Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalms 118:1

Older grade 1 (slower) through adult - best for grade 2-6
Thanksgiving Craft


Copies of the activity pages for each student

Markers or crayons (Even if you use the pre-colored version, you need something to write your message with)
Scissors
Glue - preferably white glue
OPTIONAL plastic or small paper bag to keep parts in
 


 

NOTES BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Look at the photo of the blue turkey
Keep all your cut out pieces in a bag or file folder
Most all of the pieces are numbered.
Put your name on the bottom back right edge of piece #1.
Pre-cut pieces 7, 8 and 9 to make the final cutting easier.
Pre-cut the 3 large spring squares


5. Springs folds are accoardian folds- back and forth

If you are doing this over 2 Sundays, #10 is a great place to stop.

You press the springs down before adding a "layer" so you don't smash or crumple the springs

.

Note: You can put the waddle (BODY 6) under the beak if you prefer.
