Cupcake Liner Turkey Craft

Cupcake Liner Turkey - Thanksgiving crafts for kids

I swore to myself that I was done with turkey crafts, but I could not resist doing just on more. My daughter wanted to make a craft out of cupcake liners and by craft she meant she wanted to cut them all up with her safety scissors. I had a different idea in mind for the wrappers.

Cupcake Liner Turkey

Paint a paper bowl brown & let it dry.


Cut a peanut like shape out of brown construction paper. Glue on googly eyes & cut a beak & wattle out of construction paper and glue those on as well.

Flip the bowl over & glue different colored cupcake liners that are folded in half to the back of the bowl. Fan them out half way around the bowl.


Flip the bowl back over & let the glue dry.


Cut out feet & glue them to the bottom of the bowl. Glue the body to the front of the bowl & you are finished.

Paper Plate Straw Scarecrow Hat


Like many toddlers, my daughter loves to play dress up. She has a fantastic imagination & she likes to use it. She will put herself into character & really commit to it. We love to make crafts to encourage her love for role play. We make paper plate masks often & another paper plate favorite of ours is hats. With the fall around the corner, we did a fall-themed scarecrow hat.

What you will need:

Paper plate

Paper bowl


Scrap paper

School glue

Hot glue gun (as always use caution when operating a glue gun. It is recommended that adults operate the gun)


Cut out the center of a paper plate.


Use the hot glue gun to glue the bowl into the middle of the plate.


Paint the body of your hat & let it dry.


Cut skinny strips of construction paper for your straw. Glue them around your hat on the paper plate.



Rip off a couple of pieces of construction paper to make patches for your hat. Draw in simple designs like checks or polka dots.


Glue the patches onto the bowl. Let the glue dry.


When it is dry, it is ready for your head or even your stuffed Teddy’s head.
