Paper Bag Turkey Craft for Kids

Here is a fun turkey project to do with children.  Every year we make these in my classroom, and they have so much fun.  They can't wait to take these home.   It's super easy,  and they are so cute!  You will need a brown paper bag, markers or crayons, construction paper, and a rubber band or pipe cleaner.  You also need newspaper or old magazines to stuff the turkey.

Color the paper bag on all sides.

Stuff the bag with paper.

Close the end with either a rubber band or pipe cleaner.

Fold the ends of the bag around the rubber band, and fan it out.

Here is the pattern that I use for the turkey head.  Usually the students color it, but I used construction on this one.

If you use construction, fold it over a piece of folded construction paper.  This way both sides will match.   Add some googly eyes.  The last step is to cut out feathers and glue them on!  So easy and super cute.

This year I made my own burlap turkey version to use at Thanksgiving.  You can see that post here.  I did them in two parts so the post wouldn't be super long.
