Thanksgiving table favors

Let the kids help you make these cute turkey favors for the table. You can also put a name on each one as place cards.

You will need fall colored construction paper, large tongue depressors, 9 oz. paper cups, marker, scissors, ruler, glue

Cut cups to be about 2" tall. (I use a gold colored cup). Cut a tongue depressor in half making 2 heads. Cut 5 pieces of various colored construction paper that are 5 inches by 1 inch for feathers. Make one end rounded.

On half of a tongue depressor make eyes with a marker. Cut a yellow beak and glue it under eyes. Glue the tongue depressor to the cup.

Cut two wings that are 1 inch by 1 inch (make one end round) and glue them on each side of the tongue depressor (rounded end facing back)

Glue the feathers to the back making them fan out.

Fill cups with candy maybe candy corn.
