Coffee Filter Turkey Craft

We made super cute Turkeys last year around this time, and my kids have been begging to make them again. So we did just that!



  1. Give each kid a coffee filter and markers. Have kids color the entire thing leaving a little white space here and there.
  2. Fill a spray bottle with water and lightly mist the coffee filter so the color spreads.
  3. Let the coffee filter dry while making the turkey.
  4. I used a heavy brown card stock type paper and pre-cut the bodies out for the kids.
  5. I gave the kids eyes, a wattle, and an orange beak. I had some leftover sticky foam pieces that I used. You could also use construction paper.
  6. Next I gave them two strips of orange construction paper and had them fold them back and forth.
  7. I also cut out little feet and let the kids glue those to the bottom of the legs.
  8. Glue turkey body on the coffee filter.

Here are my kids’ creations:
