Kids Thanksgiving Day Craft

Kids Craft: Stuffed Plushie Turkeys

You must check out the cutest stuffed turkeys my sister made with her students today. They are so adorable and made with inexpensive stretchy gloves ($1.40 for 4 @ Target). They are the perfect "turkey"craft and kids can make them on Thanksgiving day.

1 stretch glove
Felt squares
Stuffing material (pillow, tissues, etc.)
Glue (hot w/parents help or tacky)
Blank or used CD
Buttons/etc. for eyes


Form a base: Trace around a CD and cut a circle from cardboard and a circle from felt. Glue the felt circle to the cardboard.

Stuff the glove. Cut from felt: feathers, wattles or eyes. Glue the felt cutouts and/or buttons to the thumb piece of the glove.

Add a bead of glue around the opening of the glove and glue to the center of the base.

    Thank you Cathy. Very fun looking craft, I think my grandchildren will enjoy making them.


  3. Hi Cathie,

    I love this post, but this comment is going to be gushing in general - I love Creative Juice (it has permanent status on my TiVo) and am a big fan of the projects you and Steve share with us everyday!

    Thank you, thank you!

    O my - This is just the greatest project for all the odd gloves I always end up with!

  6. Thanks for the great idea! We made them in my kids' sewing club. What a hit!


  7. This is a very nice idea. I love the colors and the designs. Kids will definitely love this.


I love comments and questions. Sometimes it takes me a few days to reply. Have a wonderful day!
