Turkey in Disguise Thanksgiving Craft
Oh, the farmer’s turkey needs your help!! He does not want to be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner!! This is a fun activity to do with your kids.
The Thanksgiving turkey needs a disguise so the farmer cannot find him. Turkeys that have made it through in the past have been dressed like ballerinas, football players, farmers, fun characters, hula dancers, Elvis, etc. Think of something unique or special to your family.
What you will need:
- Turkey cut out. ~ You can print our here: Turkey in Disguise Templet Printable
- Craft items such as crayons, feathers, cotton balls, tissue paper, ribbons, fabric scraps, glitter, glue, pipe cleaners, really anything you have around the house. No need to buy any expensive items.
- You can try to first decide how you are going to disguise your turkey and gather your craft items or just gather all your craft items and let your imagination go wild.
- Print and cut out the turkey. You can choose to draw on feathers if you like or cut out your turkey wide to leave room for decorations.
- As an extra learning experience you can have your child write or say a persuasive argument for why the turkey should not be eaten.

Pinned about this on Pinterest. Engaging activity, I’m sure kids and parents would really love doing this together. Just hope no melt downs on Thanksgiving though when the turkey for the meal comes out. Might have to definitely let the little ones know they aren’t the same turkey.
Ok this is super cute and fun for the kids and I think I would have fun making one also thanks for sharing this one.
Dorothy Teel says
What a cool creative ide and children love to express themselves and make their own special creations and then us mams and grandmoms can have this special art work for years to come, thank you for these ideas and one for you, you can use spices from your spice cabinet to decorate the turkey and it will also smell good and coffee grounds is a great idea also
Betsy Barnes says
What fun, creative activity for kids! I love how colorful too! 🙂
What a fun craft! Thank you for sharing this with us.
This is a great idea and so much fun. I love getting your child to come up with a reason why the turkey should not be eaten. Since my nephews and grandkids will be here at Thanksgiving and are just about the age for this kind of project, I am going to get them to give this a go. It be a way to keep them entertained right before dinner.

How adorable. A cute craft to do with the grandkids. Thanks for sharing. Even though Thanksgiving is ovr I’ll put it away till next year.
Amy Green says
This would be the perfect activity to have when you’re gearing up for Thanksgiving television specials, like the Macy’s parade or Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving. It reminds me a great deal of the handprint turkey that everyone in my family did in kindergarten and primary school grades, growing up. You simply trace around your hand, and color in your thumb and finger areas for the turkey’s face and tail feathers.
Sue E says
How CLEVER!!! This would help keep the grandkids busy when they are off of school for a few days around Thanksgiving!! Plus they can put their creations on the dinner tableor counters for decorations! I tried to pin this, but I got a message saying that there is nothing to pin 🙁
I can still copy & paste the instructions.
Sue M. says
This is a really cute and clever craft that would be really fun to do! Thanks for posting.

I like these Craft pages. My niece and my nephew are going to both like these.

Very sweet – and I think I actually have all of these supplies around the house! Perfect craft idea 🙂
I am going to keep this is mind when I host Thanksgiving next year. We always have lots of kids at the house and I think this would be a good way for them to occupy themselves and have fun.
Amber Ludwig says
