How to make Turkey Toilet Paper Roll Craft?
All you need to make this fun Turkey with toilet paper rolls are:
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Thick paper – we used brown for the turkey body, orange, and yellow for the feathers.
- School Glue
- Googly Eyes
Here we made two styles of paper roll Turkey craft ideas.
First, make the body of the toilet paper roll turkey. To do so, cut out a piece of thick brown paper that matches the length of the paper roll.
Roll the piece around the roll and staple it on the back, at the top and bottom.
Then, cut out a yellow triangle for the turkey nose and, if you want, a rectangle for the top head feather, as seen in the above picture.
Finally, use school glue to stick the cut-out pieces on the roll.
If you don’t want to use staplers, you can also use brown paint and apply one or two coats of paint on your toilet paper rolls. Always wait until the paint is fully dried before sticking anything onto the roll.
Next, for the birds’ feathers, cut out 10 to 12 football shapes from thick colored paper. We used orange, red, and yellow paper.
Then, there are two options to make the feathers look even more real.
- Cut small strips on the feathers, as seen in the pictures below. This is super cute, but kids need the ability to cut things with precision, so leave this for school-age kids.
- Shred some pieces of colored paper and glue them on the feather bases. This is what my pre-school boy enjoyed the most. It’s also fun to shred pieces of paper, and gluing is a fun sensory activity at this age.
Then, use a stapler to attach the feathers on the back of the toilet paper roll.
Decorate the house or play
Kids love to play with these lovely turkeys. We arranged some seeds around them, and they pretended to feed their birds. It was a fun and easy Thanksgiving activity for preschoolers that you can reuse year after year.
