Turkey Toilet Roll Craft for Thanksgiving

It’s turkey time! Not only are we eating turkey but we are making some cute turkey toilet rolls. They make great pieces for your holiday table, or where ever else you would like them to go. They are an easy craft for your kids to make this afternoon.

It’s super simple, perfect for your youngest, and makes a great addition to your Thanksgiving decorations. You’ll need some paper plates, paint, and an empty toilet paper roll.

Thanksgiving Turkey Craft

Cut your paper plates in half.


Then paint your turkey’s tail feathers. Let your kids paint them however they want. Some of those that graced our home had stripped tail feathers.

Our toilet paper rolls were brown so we didn’t bother to paint them, but we did glue some googly eyes on them.

I also chose to staple our turkeys together so they would hold together better than if we used glue.


I love this little craft for all age groups.

Alternately, instead of cutting the paper plate before painting, it may be easier for younger children to paint first, having a larger “canvas” is easier. Either way, a beautiful turkey.

You could easily do this same craft for any type of bird, peacocks could be beautiful this way after a trip to the zoo or park.

Now you’ll have some turkey decorations while you enjoy a meal with your family and your kids will feel like they had a part in it.
