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)!!

  2. Pock pock, pock pock, pock pock, pock pockkkkk. It’s incredible.
    That was the comment of my kindergarten class as they gobble gobble gobbled around the room. Thank you on such a great variation of an old favourite. We added our names, counted the letters and wrote our names on the feathers.
    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!!!!!
