no mess thanksgiving day craft People have been making paper bag turkey crafts for ages but I still wanted to share this one because of how we made it and how my daughter was able to play as soon as the last piece was on. It’s the perfect low mess make and take craft for your kid guests at Thanksgiving dinner.

Gather your materials. You will need some paper bags, crayons, party streamers ( I save all extras from birthday parties), googly eyes, orange and red construction paper, scissors and permanent double stick tape. paper bag turkey craft

Start by cutting a few inches off the bottom of the paper bags. This makes the puppets much easier for wee little arms to handle. paper bag turkey craft for thanksgiving

Next invite your puppet maker to color their turkey. My daughter took her time taking off all the paper from the crayons first. paper bag turkey craft for three year oldsThis was an unintended fine motor skill activity in the middle of our main craft. paper bag turkey
