Paper-Sack Turkey

You will need: tissue paper or newspaper, a brown paper sack, glue, lightweight cardboard, scissors, and crayons.

  1. Stuff a few sheets of tissue paper or newspaper into the bottom of the paper sack to form the turkey’s body.

  2. Glue the edges of the top part of the sack together.

  3. From the lightweight cardboard, cut two triangle-shaped pieces for the feet. Color them, then glue them to the paper sack.

  4. Draw, color, and cut out a large “S” shape for turkey’s head, eye, neck, wattle, and beak from lightweight cardboard. Glue it to the front of the paper-sack body.

  5. Cut out a wing shape on a piece of colored paper.

  6. Draw, color, and cut out several feathers. Glue them to the back of the paper-sack body.
