I love the Thanksgiving. It is a wonderful time to reflect on our gratitude and appreciation for our family, friends, and the life we live. Lets all enjoy this time together with our children by making this Turkey Juice Box cover craft for them or allowing them to help out with their added creativity.
I am sure they will love these adorable additions. Especially, if they helped out with their little hands to make Thanksgiving dinner even more special.
Note: Please make sure you remove the straw from the juice box before you begin making the wrapper, otherwise it will be impossible for your child to pull out from behind the wrapper later.
Thanksgiving Turkey Juice Box Covers
Supplies that you will need:
- Juice Boxes of your choice (I used Juicy Juice)
- Construction paper (brown for the body, orange for the beak, red for the wattle and multiple colors for the feathers)
- Googly Eyes
Making Your Thanksgiving Juice Box Covers
Cut your rectangle out. Wrap your juice box with the paper and glue.
Out of the orange construction paper, cut an orange triangle. With the red construction paper, a small squiggle shape to be the turkey’s wattle. Excuse the wet marks.. My fingers had fresh clue on them when I took the photo. It got very interactive.
Flip your juice box over so the glued seam is face up. Glue an arrangement of feathers to the back of the juice box.
Turn your juice around and on the front, attach two googly eyes, beak and wattle.
These would be perfect for kid’s place markers at the Thanksgiving table! Just stamp their name on the turkey’s belly!
Ahead of time, wrap the juice boxes and pre-cut the feathers, beaks and wattles to make this DIY perfect for a quick class party project!
