A gaggle of turkeys are on their way to help you celebrate Thanksgiving! Create this festive centerpiece to welcome holiday guests.
Cover your work area with recycled newspaper. With Crayola® Washable Kid's Paint, color three large pieces of construction paper in fall colors such as red, orange, and brown. Dry.
Using the same colors of Crayola Crayons, create three large sheets of crayon rubbings using leaves or other items. To make crayon rubbings, peel the wrappers from crayons. Lay paper on top of textured surfaces, and rub the sides of the crayon to show the patterns beneath.
Save the brown painted paper for the body. Fold the other painted and rubbed papers in half. Use Crayola Scissors to make pointed cuts, in graduated steps, to simulate feathers. Make the tallest feather at the fold of the paper. The top feather of each sheet starts lower than the previous one. Alternate layers of rubbed and solid papers. Save the scraps. Glue paper feathers together with Crayola School Glue.
On the brown painted paper, draw a turkey head with white Crayola Colored Pencils. Make it as tall as the tallest cut-out paper. Cut it out. Curl the top of the paper forward and under to form the head. Secure it with glue. Add eyes, a beak, and a gobbler
To make a platform for your centerpiece, cut out two different-sized triangles from a box lid or a thick foam piece. Paint them two different colors. Dry.
Glue the smaller triangle on top of the larger one. Glue feathers to the top triangle. Fold the bottom of the turkey's head under and glue it to the top triangle in front of the feathers. For stability, place a craft stick behind it. Dry.Turkey Napkin Rin
Cut cardboard tubes for napkin rings. Paint in fall colors. Dry.
Using the scraps of paper from the turkey, cut two thin strips (about half as wide as your finger) of all six colors. Glue strip ends together. Then glue strips to the inside of the tube.
Cut out one brown strip as wide as and longer than your finger. Curl the top of the paper to form the turkey head and secure it with glue. Add a beak and wattle. Glue the other end of the paper head to the inside of the tube. Dry.
Display napkin ring turkeys on the bottom tier of your centerpiece.
