Artsy Parenting: Paint Chip Turkey

Use this free resource to create one-of-a-kind turkeys this Thanksgiving.

What You’ll Need:

Step 1 – Trace the shapes

Trace around the circular object to create the head from brown paper, then cut it out. Cut out triangle shapes from the red or orange paper.

*Connect: Kids can help trace or draw their own triangles to cut out. This is a great way to help children with their cutting skills too.

Step 2 – Make the tail

Have children glue or tape the paint chips to the back of the head, fanning them out to make the turkey tail.

*Connect: Use this time to name different colors, or ask your child what his or her favorite colors are.

Step 3 – Create the face

Have kids glue buttons and the beak to the turkey’s face.
