Paper Plate Turkey Craft

We've included easy instructions and a free printable template. All you need to do is add your own creative flair...

Are you ready to get crafting? Here's what you'll need:


  • One white paper plate
  • Colored construction paper in red, yellow and orange
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Colored markers
  • Our template


Use your colored markers to color the back of the paper plate. We divided our plate into triangular section. (Check our photo for reference).

Print out our template. Cut out the separate pieces, using white paper for the head and body, red construction paper for the wattle, yellow paper for the feet, and orange for the beak.

Draw eyes onto the head pattern piece and color the head and body brown. Glue the beak and wattle in place.

Glue the head to the body and attach the feet to the bottom of the body pattern piece. Then glue the entire body to the paper plate!

That's it! Now you can hang your Thanksgiving turkey to decorate for the holiday!
