Paper-Bag Turkeys

These crafty gobblers will charm young holiday guests

What you’ll need

  • Scissors
  • Medium-sized brown bag
  • Newspaper
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Red balloon
  • Two large grocery bags
  • Large rubber band

How to make it

  • To make the head, stuff the bottom of the medium-sized bag with balled-up newspaper. Twist the top of the bag to form a long, skinny neck.

  • Glue the googly eyes and the balloon wattle onto the face.

  • For the turkey's body, use one large bag. Snip a hole through the front of the bag an inch from the bottom and fit the neck into it. Then, stuff the body two thirds full with newspaper. Close the top of the bag with the rubber band.

  • To make tail feathers, cut four large half-circles from the remaining bag and then glue them in layers to the back of the body.
