Add a few drops of different colors of acrylic paint to the bottom end of a piece of thick stock paper.

Scrape a few times forming smaller arcs underneath each other and working towards the center.

Let the paint dry,.

Cut the turkey’s body out of a piece of construction paper. Our shape is a bit like a fat bowling pin.

You may draw on eyes or use googly eyes. Lastly, cut a waddle out of a piece of red construction paper and glue it under the beak. It’s as simple as that, a quick and easy Thanksgiving craft that is fun to make.
