Turkey Nut Holder Thanksgiving Craft
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

An egg carton in clever disguise, these individualized cups hold a nutty snack for young gobblers.

What you'll need

  • Pencil
  • Egg carton
  • Scissors or X-acto knife
  • Tempera paint (brown or yellow)
  • 4-inch pipe cleaner
  • Pushpin (optional)
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Colored feathers (available at craft stores)
  • Glue stick
  • White paper
  • Toothpick
  • Marker

How to make it

  1. Draw a cut line around one of the cups in the egg carton. Then, cut along the line (a parent's job) and paint the cup.

  2. Fold the pipe cleaner in half and twist the ends together to form a wattle. Push the exposed wire through the top of the turkey's beak until one third of the pipe cleaner is through the hole. (Tip: Stick a pushpin through the carton first.) To keep the wattle from slipping out, bend down the inserted end.

  3. Glue on the googly eyes and feathers.

  4. To make a name tag flag, cut out a strip of white paper. Cover one side with glue, then place a toothpick in the middle and fold the paper in half so the toothpick is glued inside. When the paper is dry, write on a name, then stick the toothpick through one side of the turkey, and the holder is ready to fill with nuts.
