Shapes Turkey Craft -
Shapes, Scissor Skills, Colors, and Counting Practice
Contributed by Leanne Guenther
This craft can be used to teach a variety of skills. You don't have to
use all the thoughts for lessons... just choose the ones you're working on
with your child. I have included a small version of the template as well
as a large version that used multiple template pages.
Thoughts for Lessons:
This craft has lots of circles and ovals to cut out -- good
You can precut the template into separate pieces (roughly) to make
it a bit easier for beginning crafters to cut out the shapes.
Separate the circles, ovals and triangles.
Verbally instruct the children on how to assemble the shapes using
the colors of the shapes. (ie: Take the orange triangle and glue it on
the brown circle.).
Show the children two circles and ask -- is this one bigger, smaller
or the same size as that one.
Count the circles, ovals and triangles.
Glue the small circle as a head on top of the larger body circle.
Glue the circle eyes and red oval to the head.
Glue the triangle beak slightly overlapping the oval.
Glue the medium sized oval wings onto the sides of the body.
Glue the triangle feet onto the bottom of the body.
Glue the large colorful oval feathers onto the back of the body.

Set page margins to
zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE,
PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
