How To Make Coffee Filter Turkeys
- You can use this idea for fall kids crafts or for a Thanksgiving day activity for kids.
Create these Dollar Store Tie-Dye Turkeys in just about 30 minutes with coloring and cutting help from the kiddos!
Flatten round coffee filters and apply several colors of washable markers in a variety of patterns. Remember to use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, such as red, orange and yellow,
so that the colors blend harmoniously. Or let the kids go crazy with creativity picking non-traditional colors.
Place a colored coffee filter on a craft mat or zipper bag and spritz with water to watch the magic! Set aside to dry.
Clip the clothespins on a scrap of cardboard and paint all sides with brown craft paint and paintbrush. Set aside to dry.
Attach wiggle eyes using a glue gun with a fine tip applicator.
Cut a triangle beak from yellow craft foam and a squiggly waddle from red craft foam with scissors. Attach under wiggle eyes using a glue gun with a fine tip applicator.
Fold dry coffee filters in half and crinkle slightly to fluff. Insert the coffee filter into the top clip of clothespin. Now you are done!
