A fun family turkey project for Thanksgiving is a three-dimensional paper bag turkey with feathers showing gratitude. Tissue paper or newspaper gives the bag its 3D shape, while strips of colorful paper create the feathers. Construction paper works well for the wings and facial features.
For a larger turkey display, a large brown grocery bag is an option. This allows the family to make one large turkey that doubles as a centerpiece. Brown paper lunch bags work well for individual turkeys or one small family turkey. Family members can cut out their own feathers from colorful paper or use precut feathers. Family members write things they are thankful for on the feathers before gluing or stapling them along the top and sides of the stuffed brown bag.
