This Torn Paper Turkey Craft is a great way to use up all your scrap pieces of paper while working on fine motor skills. Tearing paper for this turkey craft is a great way to build the small muscles in the hands; muscles that are needed for handwriting, buttons, zippers and so much more.
We have done A LOT of Thanksgiving crafts here lately. As I cleaning up from all our projects, I noticed we had a lot of scrap paper leftover (especially red, orange, and yellow). We decided to turn that scrap paper into feathers for our turkey.

The supplies for this turkey craft are really basic…paper and glue…super simple and mostly likely stuff you have on hand.
We used a cream colored piece of scrapbook paper as the base for our torn paper turkey craft. We used pieces of red, orange, and yellow scrap paper for the turkey’s feathers. The turkey’s body was made from brown paper. For the turkey’s face we used orange, red, white, and black. You could omit the white and black paper and substitute googly yes.
1. Start off by tearing your scrap paper into small pieces.
2. Glue the pieces of paper to the piece of cream colored paper (or whatever you use for the base). We left a spot in the center of our paper bare where we later added the turkey’s body. You could also add the turkey’s body first and have the kids glue paper around the body.
3. Cut a body for the turkey from brown paper.
4. Cut eyes from white and black paper, a beak from orange paper, and a gobbler from red paper. Glue pieces to the body of the turkey.
5. Glue the turkey’s body to the center of your paper to complete your torn paper turkey craft.
