Paper Bag Turkey Craft

Brown paper bag puppets are always fun to make. We have made quite a few, including an owl, eagle, puppy, and a giraffe. I thought this turkey puppet would be a fun Thanksgiving Craft to make, and I was right! Lorelai really enjoyed this one. She did almost all of the work. I just drew the shapes of the feathers and beak for her. She was very proud of her turkey!

Materials Needed: Construction Paper (various colors), a Brown Paper Lunch Bag, Scissors, Glue Stick, and a marker.

Directions: The instructions for this are self explanatory; just draw the feathers/beak/wattle onto the construction papers and cut out/glue down. See the photos above and below to see positioning! Tip for the feathers — expedite the cutting process by layering your construction papers and cutting all out at once.


I give this craft five stars — it’s easy to make, only needs a few common materials, and the end product is adorable. I hope you get a chance to make one with your child(ren)!!

  1. […] In addition to taking a virtual field trip, you could have a party! Kiddos are beginning to get excited about the upcoming holiday season. Why not plan a party in the speech room. To get started, you could either have students brainstorm what you would need to do to plan a party or you could use this party planning checklist. If there are too many or too few details, feel free to alter it to best fit your students’ needs. This activity could be used to target sequencing, inferential reasoning, following directions, and pragmatic skills. Once you and your students have worked together to plan the party, HAVE A PARTY! This activity would, most likely, need to be broken down into several sessions, but you could plan and execute a party from start to finish! Invitations with various themes can be downloaded free here. If you choose to serve food at your party, students could be involved in preparation. When it comes to the guest list for your party, the options are endless! You could throw a party for just your speech group or you could invite the whole school! It might even be fun to collaborate with the classroom teacher to plan the party for the whole class! As a follow up to the party, you could ask students to compare and contrast the party you planned to their Thanksgiving festivities at home. When planning the decorations and food, you could use this worksheet where students will use basic inferential reasoning skills and categorization skills to decide which items would be appropriate décor for your party. You could also use these picture prompts as a sequencing activity. If your students choose to do a craft as one of their party activities, the options are endless, from a simple woven placemat to a paper bag turkey. […]
