Beaded Turkey Craft

Beaded Turkey Craft


Your toddler or preschooler will love this beaded turkey craft!

  • Roll a ball of play dough.
  • Draw (or print) a turkey face and stick it onto the top of a toothpick or food pick.
  • Use pipe cleaners as the turkey’s feathers.
  • Thread beads onto the pipe cleaners. We decided to sort the beads and match them to the same colored pipe cleaner.
  • Arrange the turkey’s face and feathers into the ball of play dough.

Other Ideas:

Make a turkey family.

Use the turkeys as a centerpiece.

Make a red turkey (red play dough, red pipe cleaners, and red beads), a yellow turkey, etc.
