Gobble gobble! It’s that time of the year to give thanks for family, friends and so much more. But when patients of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta can’t run and play with visiting relatives, be apart of turkey day at school or enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at home, we bring the holiday spirit to them! With cool arts and crafts that are sure to bring out every child’s creative side, we also gathered around to celebrate an important day of American history. For this Thanksgiving arts and crafts party, we chose to do a paper plate turkey wreath, Lego stamped corn and Thanksgiving themed drawing pages. And just as we hoped, our party brought all the kids out of their hospital rooms to enjoy a fun-filled day of stuffing turkeys.
Itchin’ to do a turkey craft at home? Scroll down below to make your own turkey wreath and also be sure to check out our photos and video below!
How to Make a Paper Plate Thanksgiving Turkey Wreath
1. Start by cutting out the center circle of your paper plate. Paint the bottom rim of the plate with your brown paint. Set it aside to dry completely.
2. While your paint is drying, cut out a circle from brown construction paper for your turkey head and an orange beak. Then several strips of colored construction paper for turkey feathers.
3. Glue (or staple) your turkey face onto the bottom of your paper plate. Glue your googly eyes, red water balloon and beak onto your turkey face.
4. Finish your paper plate Thanksgiving turkey wreath by folding the paper feather strips around the top of the paper plate and staple them in place. Now you can hang your cute turkey wreath on your doorknob or on a hook on a mantel.
