Grateful Gobbler

This turkey book is a great craft for kids on Thanksgiving Day!
Make this fun, fanned turkey book to show friends and family what you’re grateful for!


1 sheet red, orange, yellow, and brown paper, 8½" x 11"
1 brad
2 googly eyes, ½"
adhesive foam tape

tacky glue
hole punch

1. Print and cut out the feather, head, body, beak, and waddle templates. Trace the feather template three times on the red, yellow, and orange papers. Cut out the feathers. Trace the head and body shapes onto the brown paper and cut them out. Trace and cut the beak from the yellow paper. Trace and cut the waddle from the red paper. 

2. Glue the googly eyes onto the turkey’s head. Fold the beak in half and glue the bottom half to the turkey’s face. Glue the waddle to the back of the head so it hangs down from the turkey’s neck.

3. Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the bottom of each feather. Punch a hole in the top of the turkey body. Slide the brad through the body and all the feathers, then bend the ends of the brad back. Use a piece of adhesive foam tape to attach the head to the top of the brad.

4. Use the marker to write what you are thankful for on each feather of the turkey!
