Yeppers, I said Karate CHOP style! Your kiddos are going to LOVE this simple turkey craft! I'm always searching for ways to include movement in pretty much everything I do. They learn so much better when their little bodies are in motion! This craft combines gross motor skills with art. You can't go wrong!
What do you need?
Brown circle cut from construction paper or a brown paper bag (for the body)
Yellow triangle (for the nose)
Two white circles (for the eyes) [I used a 2 inch circle punch.]
Two black circles (for the eyes) [I used a 1 inch circle punch.]
So the best part of these turkeys, of course, is the karate chops! I stick the tape to the end of the table and pull it taut. Make sure you leave enough room so they have ample space to "chop" without hitting their hand on the table. Sometimes it takes the kids a few tries to get it the first time, but when they finally do they're little faces light up with pride! It's awesome!
