Looking for a fun and educational Thanksgiving craft for kids? Look no further than these Scissor Practice Turkey Puppets! These adorable puppets are super simple and fun to make with the printable template.
They have gorgeous paper tail feathers that offer kids the perfect opportunity to develop their scissor skills. Kids will love snip, snip, snipping down the sides of the feathers to give them a wonderfully realistic texture!
The printable turkey puppet template comes with two different designs. So you can either add a popsicle stick to make a turkey stick puppet or cut out holes to make a turkey finger puppet. Both are lots of fun to make and play with and both use the same scissor practice feathers for building all those wonderful cutting skills.
Whichever Scissor Practice Turkey Puppets you decide to make, you’ll have a choice of either a ready coloured template or a B/W version that kids can colour in and decorate in their own way.
