This Clothespin Turkey Kid Craft came together so quickly for Thanksgiving. It was a great excuse to use some cupcake liners from my massive stockpile. Who else buys way more cute cupcake liners than you need for baking cupcakes?!
Clothespin Turkey Kid Craft
Clothespin turkeys make a great Thanksgiving craft to do at home with your kids or in a large group. This craft is inexpensive, requires just a few simple supplies, and has just three easy steps.
This would make a great craft for Thanksgiving parties or drop in and go events. It’s one of those that you can set out the supplies and kids and families can work on them at their own pace. It doesn’t require drying or any fancy crafting supplies and skills, so kids can do them quickly and take them home when done.

*The surface of the clothespins is not very large. Your beak, wattle/gobbler and eyes need to be tiny. If you are doing this clothespin turkey kid craft with younger kids, it might be easier to pull out markers and let them draw a face on their turkeys.
1. Start out by folding a cupcake liner in half. Each turkey requires just one cupcake liner. Glue the two halves together so that the color is on the outside and visible.
2. Glue the folded cupcake liner to the back of the clothespin near the top for your turkey’s feathers.
3. Finally, cut a beak and gobbler for your turkey craft. Glue the eyes, beak, and gobbler to the flat side of the clothespin (opposite of the cupcake liners). You could also use a marker and draw a face on your turkey craft.
