Egg Carton Turkey Craft for Kids

To start off the beginning of November, we are sharing a fun little turkey craft full of tasks to strengthen those fine motor skills!  Your kiddo(s) will be holding a paint brush, picking up feathers and googly eyes, squeezing glue, and more!  If you like to get crafty, like we do, you probably already have all the materials you'll need for these oh so cute and festive Egg Carton Turkeys.

Head to your craft stash and grab:

  • egg carton
  • paint/ brushes
  • googly eyes
  • orange triangles (for beak)
  • red yarn (for snood)
  • feathers

1. Grab an empty egg carton from your stash and cut apart the individual egg cups.  To make the feathers go in easier, I took a skewer and pre-poked holes in the top of the egg carton.

2. This step could be skipped if you have brownish egg cartons, but I prefer them painted.  So I grabbed some brown paint and had the kiddos paint them up.  We left them to dry and finished the rest of the project after dinner....
I made a model turkey and then gave Big Brother & Little Sis a tray of all their supplies.
3. Once they are dried, add the feathers, googly eyes, nose, and snood!

While making the turkeys, there are plenty of opportunities to count, practice colors, etc!  And once you have the finished turkey, you can practice using tweezers and/or clothespins to "pluck" the turkeys feathers!
