We have used quite a lot the yarn and paper plate combo for crafts this year, from boats and jellyfish to apples and witches. Today, we’re using these two materials together again to create a yarn and paper plate turkey craft. It’s super simple to make and you can be use it to decorate for Thanksgiving.

- cardstock paper: brown, red and yellow
- googly eyes
Step 1: Start by painting the rim of the paper plate brown. Set it aside to dry.
Step 2: While the paint is drying, cut out a circle from brown cardstock paper for the turkey’s head. Cut also a beak from yellow cardstock paper and the red thing that goes right next to the beak ( I never know how that one is called). Glue them on the brown paper. Glue also two big googly eyes. The bigger the eyes, the funnier the turkey will look.
Step 3: Cut out the center circle of the paper plate.
Step 4: Punch a few holes at the bottom of the paper plate and more holes at the top of the paper plate.
Step 5: Thread yarn through the holes. You can use one or more colors of yarn. Use a plastic needle for young kids.
Step 6: Once you’re done with the yarn, glue the head onto the bottom of the paper plate.
