Turkey Napkin Rings

Kids will be eager to help set the Thanksgiving table with these little napkin-holding gobblers.


Flat wooden craft spoons
Tempera or acrylic paints
Paper towel tube
Orange pipe cleaners
Black marker
Tacky glue
Red felt

Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. Five craft spoons are required for each ring. Using tempera paint, color one of them yellow for the turkey's head, the others, a variety of colors (they'll be used for tail feathers).

2. For the turkey's body, cut a 2-inch section from a cardboard paper towel tube and paint it brown.

3. From orange pipe cleaners, shape a pair of short legs with three-toed turkey feet. Fit the legs through small holes in the cardboard tube, bending the tips inside the tube to secure them.

4. Use a marker to draw eyes on the face and use tacky glue to attach a red felt wattle.

5. Finally, glue the head to the front of the body and the tail feathers to the back.
