Time: 30 minutes or more
Type of activity: Arts-and-crafts

  • Brown, red, orange, yellow, and green construction paper. You can use more colors if you'd like.

Welcome your holiday guests with these easy-to-make turkey place cards.

Directions:

Before you begin, draw and cut out all the shapes you'll need from the construction paper:

  • Two 3" brown circles
  • One brown pear shape (2" x 1.5") for the turkey's head and neck
  • Ten rocket-shaped tail feathers about (5" x 1") in a variety of colors
  • 1 small yellow triangle for the turkey's beak
  • 1 red L-shaped gobbler
  • 3" x 6" rectangles in different colors for each guest (folded in half)
  1. Place one of the brown circles flat on the table. Glue the colorful tail feathers in a fan shape along the bottom of the circle.
  2. Glue the second brown circle on top of the first (covering the glued part of the tail feathers).
  3. Glue the circle to the front of the folded rectangle.
  4. Glue the pear shape onto the circle to create the turkey's neck and head.
  5. Bend the yellow triangle so that it looks like a beak. Glue it to the top of the turkey head.
  6. Glue the gobbler below the beak.
  7. Using a marker, create eyes for your turkey.
  8. Write a guest's name on the brown circle body.

Your first turkey is ready to show a Thanksgiving guest where to sit at the table.

Repeat the steps above to make a place card for each guest.
