HOW TO MAKE A POOL NOODLE TURKEY
TIP: Turn this into a Turkey Art Bot. See how to create an art bot here.
STEP 1: Measure and cut the orange pool noodle into six-inch lengths with a serrated kitchen knife. Adults only!
STEP 2: Cut out triangle beaks from yellow craft foam and “L” shaped squiggle waddles from red craft foam with scissors.
STEP 3: Attach features and wiggle eyes to the pool noodle with a glue gun and low temp glue sticks to create the turkey’s face. The low temp glue gun will prevent the pool noodle and craft foam from melting, but you could also use liquid glue.
STEP 4: Cut a five-inch tall trapezoid shape from brown craft foam. Attach feathers to the foam with a glue gun and glue sticks to create the turkey’s tail.
STEP 5: Attach the turkey’s tail to the back of the pool noodle with the glue gun and glue sticks.
