Celebrate Thanksgiving

 With a paper plate

TURKEY HAND PUPPET

   

 

Tools and Materials:

2 Plain white paper plates

Colored construction paper or craft foam sheets

1" black or brown pom pom

3/8" red pom pom

2 jiggle eyes (approx. 1/4")

Hot glue gun (for adult use) or white glue

Scissors

 

Directions:

1)  Cut 5 large feather shapes and 4 small feather shapes out of different colors of construction paper or craft foam. (See feather shapes above. Adapt size of feathers to the size of the plate.)

 

2)  Cut out a pear-shaped piece of construction paper for the body. (See shape above. Adapt it to the size of the plate and use a color suitable for the turkey's body.)

 

3)  Cut one paper plate in half.

 

4)  On the bottom side of the full paper plate, glue the tail feathers (the larger ones) in place to make a fan. The glue two of the smaller wing feathers below the fan on each side.

 

 

5)  Turn the plate with feathers upside down and attach (with glue or staples) half of a paper plate to the top portion of the puppet plate. (This provides a place for a hand to operate the puppet.)

 

6)  Turn the plate back to the turkey side and glue the pear-shaped body in the center so that it looks like the feathers are coming out on the body.

 

7)  Glue the larger, dark colored pom pom at the top of the pear-shaped piece for a head and glue the smaller, red pom pom right below the head for the waddle.

 

8)  Glue jiggle eyes on the head and a small triangular piece of construction paper or craft foam for a beak.

 

9) Optional: You can use a marker or crayon to draw feet beneath the body.

   

Use:

Place your hand into the half paper plate on the back and play with the turkey puppet, make him go "gobble, gobble, gobble!" just for fun.
