It’s November, with turkeys and cranberries lurking around. I wanted to do a fun craft about turkeys, and my beloved index cards (I REALLY like coloring on index cards). To do this creative activity that I made up, you will need:

  • Scissors
  • 3 white index cards
  • Colored pencils, sharpies, and/or markers
  • One pencil for outlining
  • Glue

First, design an oval and then cut it out. I picked a different color group for each category.

Take one index card and draw two ovals on it, on each half of the index card (HAMBURGER STYLE). Inside the ovals, draw fun designs. Do the same for one other index card. Cut out the ovals. Now, take the last index card and draw the body shape of the turkey. Now draw a design on the body. Draw eyes on the head part. Now attach the ovals to the body.

This was fun, but it wasn’t as time-consuming as I expected. I was done within 10 minutes, which didn’t really go with what I wanted. I would have liked if the activity was more engaging. I didn’t feel that much enthusiasm while making the turkey. I wouldn’t recommend this activity if you are very bored, or want to do something time-consuming. I think with more edits and tweaks, this activity would work better. I think it also didn’t come out that well because it was an original

The feathers are on top of the body. It shouldn’t be underneath or the same.
