I grabbed felt sheets in 5 totally different colours, 1 sheet of brown foam paper, and adhesive googly eyes. I already had a sharpie/markers, scissors and glue at residence.
Steps to the Grateful Turkey
Step one is to organize the feathers and the physique of the turkey. The feathers shall be reduce from the felt sheets and the turkey physique from the froth sheet. My 6 12 months previous daughter can safely reduce with scissors. I allowed her to chop her personal feathers and the physique of the turkey.

After you could have the feathers reduce in addition to the turkey physique, you’ll be able to have your youngster provide you with an inventory of issues they’re grateful for. “Toys” is all the time in style with my youngsters.

Ensure to go away about half″ house on the backside of the feather for gluing.
After you could have your grateful feathers accomplished, it’s time to assemble.
