Turkey Present for the Teacher

To show our gratitude to our kids teachers we made a simple turkey out of a paper lunch bag that was filled with homemade chocolate chip cookies.  Yummy! You need:

Paper lunch bag, something to fill it with (newspaper would work too, although treats are more fun), plastic spoon, googly eyes, construction paper in a variety of colors, stapler or tape, glue, a rubber band and brown paint.

We first wrapped our cookies in plastic wrap and put them into the sack.  Next we rubber band the plastic spoon to the opening of the bag with the part you eat on facing up.  We painted the spoon brown.  While that was drying we cut out several different colors of feathers and a beak.  Once it was dry we stapled the feathers to the back of the bag, glued on the beak and eyes and wrote a little note on the side about being thankful for them.  It was very easy and I had all the supplies on hand.  Another way to show our gratitude for our fabulous teachers!

This craft can easily be modified to fit different occasions.  You could do it on the first day of school and paint it into an apple filled with yummy treats, a pumpkin near Halloween, even a Christmas tree!
