Shape Turkey Craft

Sharing is caring!

Because we love shape crafts and Thanksgiving is just around the corner I thought it would be a great idea to make a shape turkey craft. We created quite a few crafts with shapes, from snowmen for the cold season to bats about Halloween.

Kids will get to use the following shapes: circle, square, triangle, rectangle, oval, hexagon and rhombus. These will be the turkey bodies. All the eyes are circles, the feet are rectangles, the snoods are rhombus, the beaks are triangles and the feathers are triangles too.

These shape turkeys are a great addition to our Thanksgiving craft collection. If you check out our Thanksgiving crafts, you will find a lot of turkey crafts. But in the next few weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, I’ll be adding some other shapes: pilgrim, Native American and Mayflower boat.

How to make a shape turkey craft

The shape turkey template comes with two versions:

1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.

2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.

This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
