Toilet Paper Roll Turkeys

Our Toilet paper roll ghosts and bats were so popular during Halloween, that we decided we could easily do turkeys as well!

All you need for the project:

Feathers (Michael's has a good assortment of feathers ranging in price from $1.99 to $4.99)
Empty toilet paper rolls
Googly eyes (also found at Michael's, or Target dollar section)
Fuzzy pom poms

Start by gluing on the googly eyes and poms (for the beak). I made dots with the glue where the eyes and beak went, then the kids stuck the googly eyes and poms on. Set aside and let them dry completely.

Once dried, turn the paper towel roll over (so the eyes and beak are facing downward) and add a line of glue. Have kids stick the feathers on the glue. We had to add more glue the more feathers the kids put on.

Bam! They're done and super cute!

If you wanted to, you could have the kiddos paint the toilet paper rolls brown, but we chose to leave ours since that would have required a lot of patience for the littles! Our next toilet paper roll project: reindeers!
