We made paper plate turkeys in preschool

Our classes are in full turkey mode and today these children made a simple paper plate turkey.

The teacher set out some construction paper squares, half a paper plate, and a construction paper turkey body for the children to put together…

Other than saying “Let’s make a turkey today!” the teacher did not give any additional instructions. Most of the children started by gluing their turkey bodies on the paper plate first…

Then the children began gluing on the construction paper squares for the turkey feathers…

Some of the children were very specific in where they placed their turkey feathers as they glued them in a row around the edges of the plate…

Other children chose to glue their turkey feathers all over the paper plate and on top of their turkey bodies too 🙂 …

Although there were lots of other activities happening around the room at the same time, this table was always filled with happy participants.
