How to Make this Yogurt Cup Turkey Craft

1. Paint the yogurt cups and wooden disks brown; the wooden circles are probably not necessary since they are already a natural wood color, but I had them and wanted our turkeys to be all one color.  

** Alternatively, you could use card stock instead of wooden disks.

2.  After two coats of paint, glue eyes, nose, and the red thingy onto the wooden disk.  This will be the turkey's face.

3. Hot glue the feathers inside the yogurt cups.  If making these with little hands, please be watchful using a glue gun.  

** To prevent glue gun burns, it may be helpful to squirt a layer of hot glue on the inside of the yogurt cup and then use a pencil to push the feather into the hot glue.

4. Finally, hot glue on the wooden disk turkey faces onto the yogurt cup.

** If you are not a yogurt fan, you could probably make them using paper tubes.

Aren't they adorable?!
