Turkey place cards/napkin rings

If you look up toilet paper turkey crafts there are a ton out there, but this one is a bit different and was fun and easy enough for my 4 year old to do so I thought I'd share. Plus, you can use them in two different ways! :)

Turkey Place cards

Turkey Napkin rings

The items you will need are:
toilet paper tubes
black and orange marker
googley eyes
cardstock for name cards

With the black marker, draw three peaks with the middle one being a bit skinnier. If the toilet paper tube were cut along the back and laid flat the peaks would look like this:
Here's how it looks on the toilet paper tube:
Cut on the lines. It's easiest to cut down instead of trying to cut down and up.

 Here's how it looks all cut:
Now you will fold the peaks down. I drew horizontal lines on this one to show you where to fold:

 The middle peak gets folded twice to make the turkey head. Kids can fold them down but they might need a bit of help. It can help if you bend the wings so they fit around the tube shape but this can give it a different look.

 Now you get to do all the fun decorating stuff! Color the beak orange, glue on the eyes and glue on some feathers.
Don't I look so cute?
 Then you make a little name card and it can fit between the head and the wings or you can slip the napkins inside for a cute napkin ring.

 We made a whole bunch of them and it was a lot of fun!
 Have a great Thanksgiving!
