Thanksgiving Turkey Craft for Kids

If you enjoy having your children play and explore painting, but don’t love a lot of paint everywhere than salad spinner painting may just be your kind of painting. It is a form of spin painting that uses this common kitchen gadget.

We just painted the feathers of this wonderful turkey craft with the spin paint technique and didn’t end up with paint all over the table because we used the salad spinner.

Instructions for Creating Your Turkey Artwork

Step 1

In a small bowl, add a couple of spoonfuls or globs of a single color to a little water and swished it around. You can start by just covering the paint with water. You want a colorful, just slightly watery consistency of the paint.

Mix until the water and the paint has blended.

Creating Thanksgiving art is easy, just mix the paint in some water and pour it in the salad spinner over the muffin liner.

Step 2

Place a coffee filter in the bottom of the salad spinner or art spinner machine.

Add the watered down paint mixture on top of the coffee filter sitting in the salad spinner sparingly at first. You can always add more paint!

Make a bunch of different turkey crafts. They used red in this one.
You can use other colors and make multiple turkey crafts.

Step 4

We repeated the process above a couple of times using a different color of paint each time. The paint created pretty layers on top of each other as we added each cup of paint and spun it.

We then cut out a head, eyes, beak  and feet to add to the turkey out of construction paper.

You can also use googly eyes instead of making your own.

Step 8

My son glued each of the pieces onto the turkey’s feathers and we had a turkey with feathers to make an original piece of Thanksgiving art.
