Turkey Recipe Craft 
By: Monica Resinger 
_http://homemakersjournal.com_ ( 
This would make a cute hostess gift. It's also a fun and easy craft for  kids 
to do. 
small brown paper bag 
orange and yellow construction  paper 
6" piece of tan yarn index card 
magazine page with dark brown  colors on it 
1 cup rice 
brown acrylic paint 
small piece of sponge  
stapler or glue 
black marker 
hole punch 
For the body, cut off the top half of the small brown paper bag and save  for 
use later. Put the 1 cup rice in the bottom half then bring the top of the  
bag together and to a point then staple at that point. The bag should now be  
stapled closed so the rice will not come out. Put a small puddle of brown paint 
 on a few layers of newspaper. Dip the small sponge into the puddle of paint 
then  pat on the newspaper to take off excess paint. Now, dab the sponge all 
over the  bag with the rice in it. 
For the wings, take the top half of the bag and cut it at each side so you  
end up with two pieces the same size. Dab these pieces with the sponge and 
brown  paint on one side as you did for the bag with the rice in it. Let dry. 
 these two pieces accordion style then staple one end together so you have a  
small fan. Now staple or glue one fan to each side of the 'body'. 
For the legs, cut two 1/2" X 8" pieces of construction paper. For the feet,  
draw two 2" cup shapes with three 1/2" toes and cut them out. Staple one foot 
to  one end of each leg, then glue top of the legs to the bottom of the 
`body'. For  the tail, cut the brown colored magazine page to a 5" X 7" 
then fold  into a fan and staple as you did for the wings. Glue or staple the 
tail to the  back of the `body'. 
For the head, cut out a 4" light bulb shape from the orange construction  
paper. The head is the bigger part of the light bulb and the neck is the 
part. Cut a 1" X 2" diamond from the yellow construction paper and fold in 
half  the long way for the beak. Glue the back of one folded side to the head 
the  middle in beak position. 
With the marker, draw on two eyes above and on the sides of the beak. You  
can also color in a red tongue with a red marker or crayon inside the beak if  
you'd like. 
Now your turkey should be finished all that's left to do is attach the  
recipe. On the index card, write the following recipe: 
Gobble-Good Turkey Casserole 
1 can cream of mushroom soup 
1 can cream of celery soup 
1 package  onion soup mix 
1 cup rice 
1 1/2 cups milk 
2 or 3 cups leftover  turkey 
Combine all ingredients in a large casserole dish. Bake covered 45 minutes  
at 350*. Punch a hole in the left corner of the recipe with right side facing.  
Thread the tan yarn through the hole, then tie around the neck of the turkey 
and  secure with a knot. This turkey looks really cute sitting on a shelf with 
legs  dangling in the kitchen.
