DIY Toilet Paper Roll Turkeys



DIY Toilet Paper Roll Turkey

When I was a child I remember bringing grocery bags full of empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls with me to school each year for crafts.  I don’t remember what we actually did with those back then but today my kids love making things with them and my personal favorite is to make cute Toilet Paper Roll Turkeys with construction paper hand prints.  This simple and fun craft can be done with any age and personalized with their names and the year to keep for years to come.   We like to each make one before Thanksgiving and create a family of turkeys on our table as a centerpiece.  Free, cute and unique it’s something we can personalize and that we know won’t cost a lot of money to do.  For this frugal mom that is the perfect Fall craft.

You Will Need:

  • Toilet Paper Rolls
  • Construction Paper or Paper for Tracing Handprints
  • Crayons or Markers
  • Glue or Tape

Using brown or orange construction paper, wrap each toilet paper roll and secure with tape or glue of choice.  Trace child’s hand on blank paper.  Have child color each finger in with different fall colors.  Cut hand print out attach to back side of toilet paper roll with glue or tape.  Using crayon or marker, draw face on front of toilet paper roll creating a turkey.  You may mark with date and child’s name as desired.



Substitute Googly eyes for permanent marker face

Cut out red or dark red construction paper into turkey neck for effect.

Add fishing line and toothpick to the back side to hang as decoration around the house, classroom or party area.
