Friends can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Baby Addy is due early December so this time of year is very exciting for us and a little bit uncomfortable for me 🙂 Both of my boys came 10 days early so we are prepared for this to happen early this time as well. Thanksgiving is always such a fun and special time in our household. It has been fun each year to watch the amount of chairs at the dinner table get bigger and bigger, whether it be through babies or new spouses/fiance. To celebrate the upcoming holiday, my youngest son and I made this cute little turkey juice box while big brother was in school.
When Jacob was the only child, I spent many afternoons crafting with him. I am glad that I will have some special crafting time with Carter before baby girl makes her appearance. These turkey juice boxes come together really quickly and is a great kids craft. This would be a fun craft to have set up even on Thanksgiving day before the meal is ready. You can keep the kids busy making their turkeys and then they can have a fun time drinking them when dinner is served.
- Variety of Scrapbooking paper, including brown, red, yellow and whatever other colors you want for the turkey feathers.
- 2 googly eyes
- Kids Glue
- Juice Box
Remove the straw from the juice box. Cut a piece of scrapbooking paper long enough to be wrapped and glued around your juice box. Almost like you are wrapping a present but without needing to cover the top and the bottom.
Cut out 4 or more turkey feathers. My feathers were about 4 inches tall and I rounded them at the top but you could always create them to have a pointed tip. Glue the feathers to the back of the juice box.
Then cut out a red “snood” and a yellow nose and glue the face pieces to the front of the juice box. Easy peasy!
My littlest guy is going to be 3 in January and this was the perfect craft for him. He needed a little bit of direction as to where to put the glue but I tend to let my boys be creative on their own. He is too little to use scissors so if you have young children you will need to supervise that part but this craft doesn’t require much help which is what I love! 🙂
I don’t know…I kind of like his turkey with the big goofy eyes a little better than mine 🙂
