Turkey Day Art ProjectIt’s Turkey Time!

My son enjoys using my craft punches and my daughter loves going through my ribbon scrap basket.  Last night, I thought we’d put those scraps and craft punches to use by creating this little turkey craft project.  Of course, we had to add a touch of Disney to our turkey!  If you like our Mickey Mouse feathered turkey and would like to make one with your kids too, here’s what you’ll need to make crafting this project super easy.

mickey punchSupplies:

Construction paper, a glue stick, 3/8 ” ribbon cut into 5″ strips, a Mickey Mouse craft punch, an office style single whole punch, a 1″ circle craft punch, a 2 1/2″ circle craft punch, and a 3″ circle craft punch.

Once you’ve gathered all of  your supplies, use your largest two circle craft punches to create the head and body.  Glue them together onto an oversized sheet of white construction paper.   Next, to create the eyes, use the 1″ circle craft punch for each eye and use the office style hole puncher to make the black centers for each eye.

Use two upside down Mickeys for Mr. Tom’s feet.  Then move on to adding the “Mickey Mouse feathers” by gluing each one down to the ribbon.

Lastly, add a little triangle-shaped nose to the middle of your turkey’s face and your done!    Once complete, allow the glue to dry.  If you’d like to use this as a dining mat for Thanksgiving, your local copy store can laminate it for you.  Remember, since this is a multiple layer paper project, use the heavier weighted plastic finish.  It may cost a touch more, but in the end your place mat will last longer.

I hope everyone is enjoying this season of Thanks.  Have you completed any Disney Thanksgiving day projects?  Please share them on my Facebook page.  I’m positive everyone will enjoy them!
