Turkey Stick Puppet

Just in time for Thanksgiving, a delightful turkey stick puppet, that doubles as a fan. It's quick, easy, and you probably have all the materials right at home.

Crafting Time: approximately 30 minutes

What You Need:

  • construction paper in orange, yellow, and brown
  • a tiny bit of red crepe paper streamer or tissue paper

  • hole punch
  • a paint stir stick, or something similar
  • craft glue


  1. Trace half a dinner plate on orange paper and half a salad plate on yellow paper. Cut these shapes out. Glue the yellow half circle to the orange one.
  2. Draw and cut a turkey head and body shape, it's a simple bowling pin shape, from brown paper.
  3. Punch two holes in the head section for eyes. You can also draw on two eyes with marker.
  4. Glue the body to the center of the yellow and orange half circles.
  5. Cut a diamond shape from yellow paper and fold it in half to make the beak. Glue the back half of the beak to the turkey's head just below the eyes. The beak will open.
  6. Cut a small strip of red crepe paper streamer or tissue paper for the turkey's wattle. Glue the end of this just above the beak, so the will hang down over the beak.
  7. Ad

  8. Draw and cut two turkey feet from orange paper. Glue these to the bottom of the turkey's body, facing upward, so it appears as though the turkey is sitting down.
  9. Glue a paint stir stick to the back of the turkey to make a puppet.
