While You Cook, the Kids Create: Thanksgiving Turkey Place Cards!

By Brenda Ponnay

It’s that time of year again. Time to start planning your Thanksgiving Day menu, stocking up on baking supplies and thinking of activities to keep your little ones busy during Thanksgiving break!

Thanksgiving Day Turkey Name Place Cards Printable (coloring sheet) by Brenda Ponnay for Alphamom.comHow about a fun turkey printable that doesn’t require any tape, glue or even glitter! (Though, please DO break out the glitter if you are so inclined.) And guess what? When you are done coloring these you can even use them as cute little turkey dinner plate name cards! Win-win!

Color your turkeys any color of your choosing. (Green and white are very popular thanksgiving colors this year but we chose to stay traditional with oranges and browns and of course rainbows.) Then cut along the outside lines and cut four small slots where you see lines going into the turkey. These slots will be what holds the turkey standing up later after you fold it.

Then fold the tail the opposite direction towards the turkey’s neck. This will seem a bit confusing because the backside of the paper is the actual turkey neck and not colored on. You can color that side now since you probably didn’t color it earlier. Then fold the turkey’s head downwards along the dotted line near his beak. Tricky! But oh so clever because you don’t have to use any glue!

Then slide the turkey feathered-back into the side arm parts where the cut slots are. See above photo for clarification.

Just kidding, no need to pose with your little turkeys unless you find yourself compelled to do so.
