Thrifty Kid Craft Idea for Thanksgiving

Spread the love

IMG_2658Right after Halloween I was able to get 15 boxes of Dots on clearance for .33 cents each.  I know some of  you thought I was crazy buying that many, but I knew I wanted to use them for my sons birthday party.  I was able to use my thrifty find, to make a cute craft project.  It was a total hit with the kids, and they were all so proud of their little turkeys.

IMG_2644Start out with a box of dots or any other candy.

IMG_2647I then used my Stampin Up punches to cut out;

  • a large circle for the head
  • 2 small circles for the eyes, and a hole punch for the eye middle
  • a square for the beak
  • round scallop circles for the turkey feathers

IMG_2649Fold the square to make a beak, and use the circles for eyes

IMG_2653Glue the head to the bottom of the box

IMG_2651Fold the scallops circles into a “V” shape

IMG_2654Glue the back part of the “V”

IMG_2655Glue them above the Turkey head

IMG_2661I had all the shapes pre cut for the kids, they had a blast making them!

I saw this idea on a email from a friend, and changed it to work for my kids.
