If your kids love making fall décor for the home, check out this Tide Pods Turkey Craft! This would be a fun one for Thanksgiving!
Tide Pod Turkey Craft Printable and Inspiration
If you have an old Tide Pods container– who doesn’t??– then this DIY Tide Pod Turkey Craft is a must make. This would be fun for the kids to help with.
You can make this by just printing out the Turkey’s face on regular paper–we have the PDF link below! If you have some printable sticky backed vinyl paper handy, definitely use that. It can run about $10-$15 for one pack, so honestly I would not buy it just for one project. The pack of sticky backed paper is a good investment if you print out a lot of stickers, are a teacher, or may possibly have other projects coming up that can use it. Otherwise, you can glue the turkey face onto the tide pods container with a good quality glue stick or hot glue.
Print your turkey face HERE. You do not have to sign up for anything to print. A PDF should pop up and you can choose how many copies to print. Be sure to change your printer settings to full color!
Putting together your Turkey Craft!
After you have your turkey’s face, ensure the Tide Pods container is clean inside and out, and no laundry detergent residue remains. You might also have a conversation with the kids that normally, laundry detergent is off limits! This one can only be used because it’s an empty container. 😉
Next, you will cut out your turkey’s feathers. We did a super simple, abstract block design for this turkey’s tail feathers. If your child is more artistic, they will probably want realistic looking feathers. Be sure to use cardstock so the tailfeathers will stand up behind the turkey. Construction paper may not.
You can free hand draw several feather shapes on the cardstock and cut them into feather shapes. That’s totally up to you! And feel free to add as many feathers as you wish! Five large feathers is probably the minimum I would use here.
You can attach the feathers to the back of the turkey with hot glue, a heavy duty tape, or any reusable tack and stick you have on hand. Regular school glue will likely not work, since the cardstock is fairly heavy– and you’re attaching them to hard plastic.
Feel free to add any embellishments to your turkey you choose! Hobby Lobby sells a lot of fun pom poms, stickers, and decorations that can make each turkey special. Remember, if you choose to use a hot glue gun, adults need to supervise/do the glue for kids.
Thanks for reading and I hope you can make memories with our fall and holiday DIY’s!
