This card features a beautiful yet super worried turkey who does not want to be eaten for Thanksgiving. He's thinking you should order a pizza instead! You can turn this into a folding greeting card if you like. Just double the width of the card base and fold it in half.
Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 1 card
- 1 sheet white card stock
- craft paper (red, orange, yellow, green, and brown)
- cloud-edged scissors
- Cut out your white card base. I cut the edges with a large cloud edged pair of scissors.
- Cut strips of the red, orange, and yellow craft paper. Short, medium, and long.
- Add a bit of glue to one end then bend into a teardrop shape. Stick ends together.
- Repeat with another strip that's longer and a different colour, then glue around it.
- Do the same with another longer strip.
- Now make a few more of these sets. This is the turkey's tail feathers.
- To make the turkey body, neck and face, cut out a peanut style shape from the brown paper.
- Cut out a small orange triangle for its beak, and punch out 2 white circles for the eyes. Draw 2 black pupils onto the eyes. Glue all this onto the face.
- Cut out a small squiggly shape from the red paper. I used a mini cloud edged pair of scissors.
- Glue the tail feathers down near the bottom of the card.
- Glue the turkey body onto the tail feathers. Punch out 2 green circles from the green paper. Cut out a cloud shape from the green paper. This will be the turkey's thought bubble.
- Write "Order a Pizza" onto the thought bubble with your pen.
- Glue the thought over the turkey's head.

I know this is from 2019 but it was so cute that I saved it because I knew that I would want to find it again.
My group was asked to supply some ideas that several ages of children could use to make an item to take home to their families.
I presented this idea and it has already been used by several classes in our elementary school. I feel sure it will be used even more as the holiday approaches.
Several teachers commented on how great the instructions were that students needed very little help (except the younger ones).
Thanks for simple, inexpensive, but neat ideas that can be completed and enjoyed by almost any age.
