Our local MOMs club meets once a month. This past Wednesday we met and the craft coordinator had the cutest little hats for the kiddos to make. She did a wonderful job of having all the supplies ready so all we had to do was glue here and staple there and we had Turkey Hats! What do you think - cute? I am not sure where she got the idea, but thought I'd pass it along to you since a quick search didn't produce anything. If you find a link to better instructions please pass it along!
1. Make a 4 inch wide band of paper bag, long enough to wrap around the head with a little overlap. Fold in half to make a 2" band. Wrap around child's head to size, secure in place. This will be in the front of the hat.
2. Cut basic feather shapes out of construction paper.
3. Insert the squared off end into the fold, secure in place with glue or staples.
4. Make a circle from the paper bag. Decorate the turkey face as seen in the pic using whatever you'd like and secure the circle face onto the hat (to hide the staple).
5. Cut wings from construction paper and secure next to the face on the hat.
We actually used staples to secure everything on Cutie Pie's head because he was very excited to push down on the stapler. We used Elmer's glue on Sweet Pea's hat, but everything came unglued when we got home, so I used my glue gun (mostly because it was already out for another repair job I had to do later in the day!)
Very simple, and a cute children's project for Thanksgiving!
