Name cards make for a festive art project

My daughter brought home a super cute turkey name card from preschool. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to make my own flock.

Now that I've recreated one of these squawkers, I realize that this project involves a lot of patience. The pieces are so small that it's probably best suited for Kindergarten on up. But the end result is awesome. You can write a name on the back of the paper, and then the turkeys serve as functional table decorations for Thanksgiving.

Here's what you do:

Materials

  • Tootsie Roll Pops
  • Fall leaves (fake or real)
  • Yellow felt
  • Eyes
  • Paper
  • Glue
  • Wood hearts
  • Wood circular beads
Directions

  • Place Tootsie Roll Pops head down on the wooden hearts.
  • Use yellow felt triangles, eyes and wooden beads to create turkey faces. Let the faces dry flat before you put them on their home bird.
  • Use leaves to create tail feathers. Glue them on the back of the Tootsie Roll pops. You can also use artificial flowers.
  • Thread the heads through the sucker sticks.
  • Place paper name cards on top, and you're done.
Happy Thanksgiving!
