I had the girls make these Paper Plate Turkey Wreaths during art group last week. I cut out the center of a paper plate to make the base for the paper loops to go on. Then I cut out a bunch of strips of paper (mine were 1x6 inches) I taped them into loops and had them all ready for the girls to glue them on to the wreath. I am sure an older child would be able to do this part themselves.
Emily glued the paper loops onto the paper plate
Next she folded two thin strips like an accordion. These will be used for the legs
I cut out feet shapes for Emily to glue onto the legs
Then she glued beak, snood and legs to the body. I traced Emily’s food onto a piece of brown construction paper for the body.
I gave the girls the choice of gluing on wiggly eyes or using a marker. Emily chose the marker :0)
Finally she glued the body to the loops on the plate.
