How to Cut a Turkey out of Construction Paper

Step 1

Cut out the shapes shown above using brown, orange, red, and yellow construction paper. (You can also use cardstock or foam for sturdier turkeys.)

Step 2

Glue the shapes together to create the head and body of the turkey, and then attach the googly eyes to complete the face. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to create one turkey for each sunflower in your bouquet.

Step 3

Trim the bottom petals of each sunflower, leaving only a rainbow-like arch of petals at the top of the sunflowers. That way, the flower petals look like turkey feathers.

Step 4

Glue one construction paper turkey to the center of each sunflower to create a festive Thanksgiving bouquet.
