Stain Glass Turkey
This is a fun turkey craft that I created for my husband's fourth grade class that I now use in my first grade class... my students loved creating them and they look wonderful hanging from the ceiling in our classroom! There is a lot of cutting involved. Most students do fine, however, a few might need some assistance. I think the end result is worth the work. ;)
Copy off the patterns onto construction paper.
Cut various colors of tissue paper into small rectangles that will cover each teardrop opening on the turkey’s wings. Approximately 3 inches by 2 inches.
Glue each tissue paper rectangle on top of each opening on one of the black wings. Take the second black wing and glue it on top of the first black wing, sandwiching the tissue paper in between the two black wings. (for younger students – I precut the wings and put their names on the top wing with a white crayon and I put their initials on the bottom wing so that they have both wings facing up with the teardrop holes matching)
The students then add the turkey’s head and legs – decorating them accordingly. You can use the patterns for the feet, eyes, and beak or let the students design their own for a more unique look.
Hang up and admire!
