These brightly colored turkeys make a festive and functional complement to any Thanksgiving dinner table.

  • 5- by 7-inch Colorful Poster Board
  • Craft Knife
  • Double-sided Tape
  • Glue Stick
  • 2 Googly Eyes (available at craft stores)
  • Red and Yellow Construction Paper




1. Cut head and feet shapes in the top and bottom edges of a 5- by 7-inch rectangle of colorful poster board, leaving a 2- by 7-inch center band.


2. Use a craft knife to cut 2 wings near the center of the band.

3. Curl the cardboard by wrapping the ends of the band around something round, such as a rolling pin. Remove the band, overlap the ends, and secure them with double-sided tape.

4. Use a glue stick to attach 2 googly eyes, a red paper wattle, and a yellow paper beak. To adorn each mini tom with fancy feathers, simply fold a colorful napkin accordion style and tuck it inside the ring.
