Directions:

Start off by using Elmer’s glue to glue on your craft sticks, 8 of them, to your cardstock or cardboard. Make sure that you cut your backing so that it’s no longer or wider than the Popsicle sticks. Allow drying!

While you are waiting for your glue to set trace out your handprints onto construction paper.

Paint the body of the turkey and allow it to dry.

Now that your body of your turkey is dry paint on a beak and snood (the red part). You can also attach the wiggly eyes now too.

The last step is to attach the handprint feathers around the back of the body. Do this by gluing them on with Elmer’s glue in a feathered fashion.

If you want to make him a magnet attach them to the back of your turkey. I used two .75 inch adhesive magnets to hold mine up.
