Thanksgiving is getting closer and we have a fun craft project that you can do with your kids. This Turkey Juice Box Craft turns an ordinary box of juice into a fun turkey friend with a colorful tail.

These colorful creations are perfect to use as kids’ place markers at the Thanksgiving table. Just write each child’s name on their turkey’s belly! You can also use this as a craft for Thanksgiving day itself to keep the kids occupied while you finish up with the preparations for Thanksgiving dinner.

Turkey Juice Box Craft

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

Turkey Juice Box Craft for Thanksgiving Process

Start with a brown sheet of construction paper.
Lay your juice box on top to ‘measure’ enough paper to go all the way around. I used a Juicy Juice Box and my sheet ended up being 7 ¾ x 4 ¾ inches.
Cut out the rectangle. Wrap your juice box with the paper and glue.
Cut a triangle from the orange construction paper. From the red construction paper, cut a small squiggle shape for the turkey’s wattle.
Next, cut out feather shapes from multiple colors of paper.
Flip your juice box over so the glued seam is face up. Glue an arrangement of feathers to the back of the juice box.
On the front of the box, attach two googly eyes, beak and wattle.
