Coffee Filter Turkey Thanksgiving Craft

Coffee Filter Turkey Thanksgiving Craft is a fun craft idea for kid on Thanksgiving Day.  Create a Turkey using watercolors for the feathers!  I love creating Thanksgiving Traditions – they are very important to me.  Our kids love to make these and hang them on our window to display.  The colors really shine through and make it a vibrant decoration for Thanksgiving Dinner.

 Create a Turkey using watercolors for the feathers!

Coffee Filter Turkey Thanksgiving Craft:


  • Brown and Yellow Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Large Coffee Filter
  • Water Colors,
  • Scissors

To Make:

  • On Day One give the children a coffee filter – spread out flat and ask them to paint with all of the water colors (for feathers).  You can microwave for 30 seconds to dry or continue on day 2.
  • Day Two: Trace beak and legs out of yellow paper and ask children to cut out.  Trace body out of brown construction paper and ask children to cut out.  Glue the body to the filter and add beak and legs.  After attached paint eyes with black water color or use a black marker.

If you don’t have watercolors you can use markers on the coffee filter and droplets of water to get the colors to run.
