When it's time to think about the Thanksgiving menu at my house, it's also time to figure out how to keep the kids busy over the long weekend. There are so many classic Thanksgiving crafts - hand turkeys are always a hit, for example - but there's only one that lets you show some love to our planet and leaves you with an adorable Thanksgiving buddy of your very own: DIY upcycled egg carton turkeys! My kids always have a wonderful time crafting their own turkeys, and I can count on this craft every year to keep them happy and engaged during their time off from school around the holidays.
To make these egg carton turkeys, you'll need some paint, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, craft feathers, and a few other supplies that you can find at your local craft store. Most importantly, you'll need to grab an empty Nellie's Free Range egg carton from your recycling bin! Once you have all the materials ready, assembling these egg carton turkeys is a breeze. My kids always start by cutting out the individual egg cups before adorning them with eyes, beaks, feet, and feathers.
These turkeys are a cute addition to your Thanksgiving tablescape, but they also make for some great cupcake toppers! You can even string them together to make a garland or add them to the kids' table settings.
