Gratitude Turkey




This craft was inspired by Little Family Fun

  As I promised in the Burlap Foam Board post yesterday — here is our craft we created to put on this fun board.

::Gratitude Turkey::

 What a great way to get the kids involved in crafting as well as being reminded of how thankful we should be for all of our things!

 It’s also a great tradition to start for all families during this season.



Spencer and I worked on this project together…he gave me his “opinions” of what he wanted his turkey to look like and insisted that I cut it out on my cricut.  You could also draw it free hand or find a template online.  I used card stock for our turkey but brown construction paper would work too. 

 Supplies I used to create our turkey:

  • brown card stock for turkey body
  • turkey pattern (I used the “black-out” feature on Animal Kingdom by Cricut cutting out turkey body, beak and red thing-ee under turkey’s beak)
  • red, blue, orange, green, purple card stock for feathers
  • feather pattern — I just drew free hand.
  • I hand cut two feet out of card stock
  • face for turkey – Peachy Keen Stamps
  • Sixxix Originals Die – Frame
  • various markers for doodling
  • I laminated the turkey for extra durability and so our family can use it for years to come.  =)

    To attach our turkey and “thankful” feathers to the burlap board we used thumb tacks.  We tried glue dots and poster puddy but those didn’t stick to the burlap.
