Grateful Gobblers

by Clubhouse Jr. Staff


1 2-inch clay pot
1 1-inch red, orange or yellow pompom
googly eyes
red yarn
red, orange and yellow card stock
Tacky glue


1. Turn your clay pot upside down and glue a pompom on the top for a head.
2. Glue on googly eyes, a triangle beak cut from orange card stock and a short piece of yarn for a wattle.
3. Trace your hand on two colors of card stock and cut out handprints for feathers.
4. Fanning them in opposite directions, glue handprint feathers together at the palm. Then attach them to the back side of the flower pot for a tail.
5. Allow each guest to keep his or her turkey as a reminder to give thanks!
