Tie-Dye Turkeys

Thanksgiving has really snuck up on me this year!  I wanted to share a last minute Thanksgiving craft with you guys.  If you're like me, I have school on Monday and Tuesday and I am always looking for something fun to do the two days before Thanksgiving Break.  If you're already out, you might need something to occuopy your own kids! :)

Every year I like to make cute tie-dye turkeys with my kiddos.  I've made these with Kindergarten kids, fifth graders and my third graders! They are super easy and the kids love them.




Aren't they adorable?  Here's the lowdown on how to make them...

I told you it was easy! I didn't make a template for the parts, because I always let my kids just create their own to make them all different.  In the past with less artistic classes, I've let my kids  trace their foot for the turkey body.   :)

Don't forget about my 700 Follower Mega-Giveaway! You could win a $25 Amazon Gift Card and tons of cool teaching resources. The giveaway ends tonight at Midnight EST. Click on the picture to grab yours!

I'm awfully jealous of you that don't have to go to school tomorrow, but the Sunday Night Blues won't be too bad, knowing I only have two days before a long break! Have a great Sunday! :)

  1. Love the turkeys!! So super cute! We did rainbow snowflakes the same way last year and my kiddos loved it! Can't remember where I found the idea - I'm sure it was another great teacher blogger.
    I will pass the turkey idea on to my teacher friends - thanks for a great post! :)

  3. Hello Amber, I posted about my coffee filter turkeys and tie dye, but separately. Hop over to my blog to see what we've been up to in my first grade classroom. I am your newest follower.

  5. Love the turkey idea! I did it with my class, but changed it just a little bit. We used paper towels to help them dry a little quicker, it also helped with the tie-dye effect. Then we glued the whole turkey to a large piece of construction paper and wrote what we were thankful for all around it. Thanks so much!
