Kids' Feathered Turkey
Step 1
Click here to download the template. Print it out and cut out the shape for the turkey’s body.   
Step 2
Trace the turkey’s body two separate times onto the white backing of one sheet of orange glitter adhesive foam.
 
TIP: Trace the shape once, then flip it over to trace the second time. This will ensure that the two foam shapes match up perfectly.
Step 3
Cut out both foam shapes and set them aside. 
Step 4
Select 10-12 feathers for the turkey’s tail. Remove the backing from one foam body shape and arrange the feathers, pressing them into the sticky-side of the foam, so that they fan out like a turkey’s tail. 
Step 5
Squirt glue onto this sticky-side of the foam, so that the glue covers the foam and feathers. Remove the backing from the second foam body shape and press it, sticky-side down, onto the first shape, so that the feathers are now sandwiched in between. 
Step 6
Glue on the turkey’s eyes. 
Step 7
Cut out a small triangle from yellow felt and glue that underneath the eyes to make the turkey’s beak. Glue a red pom pom at the bottom right corner of the beak to make the turkey’s wattle. Use image as a guide for placement of the turkey’s features, if you desire. 
Step 8
To make the turkey’s legs, clip two mini-clothespins onto the bottom of the turkey’s body shape. Coil one Goldenrod chenille stem around each clothespin to give your turkey’s legs some color. Dry completely.
