Turkeys and Native Americans! The Perfect Thanksgiving Craft!!!

This craftivity was easy to prep and fun for any primary
grade student.  We made these years ago and remembered them yesterday when we attended a wonderful Native American Dance Show performance by the group, Red Thunder.

The turkey and Native American can be made and displayed separately or students can make both and glue them back to back. They match up perfectly! These look great hanging or you can add a stick in between them before you glue it and it would make a great puppet for acting out a Turkey Poem or Native American Song!  We opted for gluing ours back to back and they are hanging from our classroom ceilings! It will be perfect for our upcoming Thanksgiving feast.

We made our craft in small groups this year and let our students use pinking sheers to cut the feathers. We have done this craft whole group and students used regular scissors! It also looks great using scrapbook paper for the feathers.
