Kids Craft: How to Make a Turkey

In the spirit of Thanksgiving (and after looking at many cute turkey themed crafts on Pinterest), we decided to make a turkey paper plate, or rather ask our favorite office 4-year-old to make us one. 
Our inspiration comes from I HEART CRAFTY THINGS Paper Plate Turkey Craft pictured below.

    How you'll make it:
    First, we painted the one of the large and one of the small paper plates brown to make the turkey's body.

    Next, we put on the googly eyes and cut a beak out of orange construction paper (we were having too much fun and missed out on a few photos).
    Then, we stapled on the "turkey feathers," which we made out of strips of colored construction paper.

    Finally, we added little feet and a wattle to complete our turkey.

    Our artist gave this craft a thumbs up and even made a second turkey! We present "Monster Turkey" pictured below on the right.
