Thanksgiving: DIY Spoon Turkey Puppets


Gobble gobble! Get your little one excited for Thanksgiving by making these festive and fun Turkey Spoon Puppets. These puppets are simple, inexpensive and fool proof. Kids can play with it as a toy or you can add it to your Thanksgiving tablescape. Ready to get started?


Turkey Spoon Puppets

Materials
Wiggle eyes
Feathers
Felt scraps in red and orange
Paintbrush
Scissors
Masking Tape

Instructions

1. Cut masking tape into varying widths and wrap around the handle of the spoon.
2. Paint the spoon. Let dry for 1 hour. Remove tape once paint is dry.
3. Cut out beak and tattler shapes from felt. Glue beak, tattler and wiggly eyes to the head of the spoon.
4. Glue feathers to the back of the spoon. Let dry for 4+ hours so glue can completely set before playing with the puppets.


[All my supplies were purchased at Michaels except the wooden spoons. Not pictured: scissors and masking tape. Don't forget to use your 40% off coupon!]


[I saran wrapped Parker's high chair tray before I let him paint. The paint is easily removed with warm water and soap. He didn't want to wear the cute apron I bought him so I put him in a throw away shirt. I knew there was a purpose for those tacky souvenir shop tshirts!]


[Parker and Kaden's spoons after painting. All of the colors from the paint set mixed so well together. I love how they turned out. The slight shimmer is fantastic.]



[I placed two glue spots on the spoons and let him add the eyes]
