Physical Challenge:
  • Brown, black, yellow and red construction paper
  • Craft glue
  • Black marker
  • Peanuts in the shell (optional)
  • Pencil
  • Cup or plastic lid measuring three inches across
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Tape
  • Toilet paper tube
Make Paper Ring

Cut out a brown paper strip that's about one inch by eight inches. Wrap the strip around the toilet paper tube, overlapping the ends by about an inch. Trim off the excess paper and tape the end in place to make a paper ring. Slip the ring off the tube.

Trace Paper Circle

On a black scrap of construction paper, trace around the end of the toilet paper tube to make a circle. Cut out the circle.

Make Turkey's Body

On the brown paper, trace around a cup or plastic lid to make a three-inch circle. Cut it out. Then fold the circle in half and cut along the fold. Tape one brown half-circle to the back of the black circle as shown to make the turkey's body. Use a marker to draw in feathers.

Attach Turkey to Ring

Staple the turkey body to the brown paper ring, aligning the bottom of the black circle with the ring's edge as shown.

Attach Peanut

Color the outside of a peanut (in its shell) with a red marker. Don't worry about coloring in all the groves. Glue the peanut in the center of the black circle as shown. (If your child is allergic to peanuts, cut a peanut shape out of red paper, and glue in place.)

Add Beak
  • Cut a small triangle from a scrap of yellow paper and glue it onto the peanut to make a beak. Use a marker to draw in eyes. Allow the glue to dry completely.
  • Repeat to make enough napkin rings for your family's Thanksgiving dinner.
