Be creative! It’s not just a coloring page. Here are some alternative ways to use the turkey template:

Coloring the Page: Let your kids color the turkey template.

Add a Photo: What parent doesn’t love a photo of their child? Use a close-up photo of the child’s face to personalize the turkey craft. Print a 3″ photo and cut it in a circle shape to glue on the turkey’s face. Print an extra copy to use as a template to cut the photo.

Collage with Tissue Paper Squares: Get creative with tissue paper squares, either in orange or yellow, red, green and brown to make vibrant and textured art.

Fingerpaint the Page: Go for simple process art and let your little ones fingerpaint the turkey template. It’s a sensory delight that’s both fun and sensory-based. To avoid a muddy colored mess, I’d suggest having the chidlren paint the turkey brown and after it dries, add color tissue paper, sequins, feathers or other craft collage items for color on the feathers.

Paint with Watercolors: Explore the world of watercolors and watch as the turkey template comes to life. I especially like liquid watercolors.

Make a Card: Turn it into a card by printing 2 on a page. Fold a piece of construction paper in half and glue the turkey photo page to the front. You can also make a full-page card, by gluing it to a piece of colored cardstock or construction paper.

Help your kids write heartfelt messages inside and decorate the exterior with stickers, glitter, or drawings. These handmade cards make thoughtful gifts for grandparents or friends, adding a personal touch to any occasion.

Turkey Books

I’ve chosen three turkey books for your preschoolers to enjoy along with the turkey craft. Check out How to Catch a Turkey, Turkey Trouble and I Spy Thanksgiving.
