Ribbon Turkeys

I made two different turkeys with the students on Tuesday. I had hoped to show you both but I am not quite ready to share the second one. So here are the ribbon turkeys I made with the kids.

There was a bit of prep involved with these little guys.
  • I pre-cut the body, beak, and wattle shapes and cut the ribbon and hot glued it in loops.
  • I also cut a cardboard background shape for the pin and glued the pin to the cardboard shape. 
  • I bought glue dots for the kids to use to stick their ribbons to the cardboard background. once they had arranged the feathers, I hot glued the body on top of the background. 
  • Then the kids glued on the google eyes, beak, and wattle.

All the materials prepped for one turkey.

I got this idea from the wonderful Maridith at Strictly Homemade please check out her turkeys.

My turkey.

Oh and here is a commentary on the depth of my stash. This is all from my stash.
