Printable Turkey Puppets

What did the turkey say? We don’t know but we do know these printable turkey puppets can become quite the chatty bunch once in kids hands.

Two fun puppets to print, one-precolored and one for kids to color as they see fit, both making sure your little ones will have lots of fun turkey time!Printable Turkey Puppets Craft for Kids.

Seems you have become quite fond on our printable puppets series – our monster puppets are getting lots of love and our fox and hedgehog puppets certainly deserve a printing out too (as do all others).

Another fun fall character, especially in November is certainly the turkey, so we just had to make one. And I think it’s awesome one!

This little bird will be the star of many pretend play or dramatic play sessions your little ones will be up to.

As our previous printable puppets have shown, this one makes a great kindergarten or preschool class project and kids love it (thank you all who have send photos and videos, love each and every one of them)!

Ready to make your turkey puppet! Let’s do it!

Cute Printable Turkey PuppetsHow to Make Our Printable Turkey Puppet

What you need

  • one or both of our printable turkey puppet templates (you can grab it at the very bottom of this tutorial)
  • printer
  • paper (we recommend heavier print paper, regular paper will work too)
  • scissors
  • glue

If you printed our black and white template, coloring supplies are needed too – we love markers, crayons, coloring pencils…

Follow the Step by Step Instructions

Print out our template (you can grab it at the very end of this tutorial).

As mentioned, we recommend using heavier print paper as this will make the puppets more durable (especially in kids hands). Also with heavier print paper, the markerswon’t bleed through if you will color with them.

Regular print paper will be OK too, if using coloring pencils or crayons. Markers might wrinkle the paper (depending on the brand).

If you printed our black and white printable turkey puppet template, first thing to do is to color it in.

You can use authentic turkey colors or go a little bit crazy with all the colors of the rainbow.

Cut out all the pieces.

Note: we made two versions, one without fold lines on the puppet that’s suitable for older kids (the fold lines are on the sides of the puppet, it’s best to fold it before you cut it out) and one with bold foldable lines easier for younger kids.

Fold along the lines.

Crease the folds to make them really crisp.

We usually help ourselves by using a craft stick and running it across the folds.

Apply some glue to the top of the snood…

…and stick it to top beak.

Glue the legs on the bottom of the turkey puppet-

Glue straps on the back.

Let the glue dry and you are ready to have fun with your printable turkey puppet.
