T is for Turkey is a perfect alphabet theme for preschool and kindergarten age children. This Letter T craft also goes well with a Thanksgiving lesson.
Each school year we move up our Letter T lesson to coincide with Thanksgiving. This year I chose a craft for my preschoolers that was abundantly simple to do. The T is for Turkey Tissue Craft and our Tee Pee Preschool Craft are also great projects but this year we had so much going on that I needed one that would take less time. It worked out perfectly. Aren’t they cute?
To assure victory, I pre-cut the feathers and other body parts: wattle, snood, beak, turkey feet. Then I glued the wattle, beak and snood into one piece so that placement would be easy. Even so, we had some unique placements on a couple of these works of art. My favorite has to be the one with eyeballs on the feathers (below.) So adorable.
Tip: take a moment to talk about turkeys so that they know what a wattle, beak and snood are. You may want to find a picture book to show them or get a photo off the internet.
