Craft stick stamped turkey for Thanksgiving and fall. Art and crafts for kids - painting with Popsicle sticks - preschoolers

My daughter loves to create and will do it with anything that is at her fingertips. Yesterday, she grabbed a pair of scissors and cut out two squares. She told me that she was going to make a jelly sandwich. She went and got some paint and a craft stick and spread her two squares with paint and made a grape jelly sandwich.

Watching her paint with the craft stick gave me an idea. With Thanksgiving nearing, I thought that we could use the craft stick as paint stamp to create a cute turkey craft.

We squeezed acrylic paints in the color of our choosing onto paper plates and then dipped half of the craft stick into the paint.

We pressed the paint covered stick onto a piece of paper. We continued to dip and stamp the craft stick around the paper to form the turkey’s feathers.

Once we stamped on all of the feathers to our liking, we set our paint aside to dry. If the paint is very thick in spots, you can blot the paint to help it dry.

While the paint dried, we cut two circles. We made one of the circles larger than the other and then cut out a small triangle for a beak and a waddle to go under the beak.

We just slightly overlapped the smaller circle over the larger circle and glued it into place. We each glued a pair of googly eyes onto the top of the smaller circle and then glued the beak and waddle underneath it.

Once the paint dried, we glued the turkey’s body in front of its feathers.
