What you need:
- Two paper lunch bags
- One hole punch
- One craft stick
- Two rubber bands
- One pencil or pen
- Yellow, red and brown construction paper
- Two googly eyes
- Recycled magazine pages
- One pair of scissors
- One bottle of craft glue
What to do:
- Fold two paper bags in half.
- Punch two holes next to the fold. The holes should be no more than four inches apart or no more than the length of your craft stick.
- Insert one rubber band through the back of each hole.
- Slide the craft stick through the rubber band loops. This side of the paper bag will be the cover of the book.
- On the reverse side, tighten the rubber bands, so the craft stick is secure, and tie the rubber bands together.
- Draw the turkey’s beak and wattle on yellow and red paper. Cut out and glue onto the cover of your book.
- Draw a feather on a piece of recycled paper and cut out. (Our feather had a base of two inches and a height of five inches.)
- Trace the feather five times and cut the additional feathers.
- Glue the feathers on top of each other in a fan pattern.
- Glue the combined feathers to the back of the turkey book.
- Cut a piece of brown paper and glue to the back of the book to hide the ends of the feathers.
- Glue paper bag flaps together to make smooth inside pages.
