Turkey - Easy Pre Preschool Sewing Project

Cheyanne made this cute stuffed turkey today. We used paper but I bet it would work great with felt too.

We used: Construction paper, scissors, newspaper, yarn, wiggly eyes, glue, hole punch, tape and pipe stem cleaner.

Cut out the pattern for the turkey .

Tape the pipe stem cleaner to the yarn to make the needle and thread.

Sew around the turkey.

Sew around and leave an opening. Stuff the turkey and sew up the opening.

Glue on the eyes, beak, gobbler, wings and feet.

Here are the 2 cute little turkeys together.

Thanks for sharing this craft! I implemented it in our pre-k co-op class. We used felt. It was super cite, but very time consuming to have all the little pieces cut out for 11 kids. Especially since you can't use a hole punch on felt. :(
But, overall it was a wonderful project- ended up really cute.
