Kindergarten Classroom Decor: Talkin' Turkey

Goodbye spiders, hello gobblers!


~Paper plates colored brown

~various autumn themed paper (I had scrapbooking leftovers in a tub)

~tissue paper cut into fringe-y rectangles

~turkey pattern on tan construction paper (body and legs)

~orange triangle for beak

~black crayons

~raffia for bows



~Turkey Alphabet Match Cards (uppercase and lowercase letters)

~ An easy pinecone turkey...

~ The children's table set with turkey coloring books and a Thanksgiving silhouette tablecloth (from Martha!)

And here's a silly stop-motion video for you:


  1. The turkey poem is one of my favorite. Now I'll be singing it for hours. It's cute though and great Thanksgiving ideas.

  2. I love this activity, and would love to do it in my classroom. Do you have a pdf file of the turkey cutout that you could post?


  3. Those turkeys are adorable :)

  4. I got the pattern from a many-years-old copy of Mailbox for Teachers... one of their Nov/Dec. issues... Since I'm no longer a subscriber, I can't log on to their site to see if they have a copy to download, nor check to see what their copyright policy is. Let me keep looking!


As always, thank you for your comments, tips, suggestions and questions!
