Materials required:

Step 1: Shaping the turkey mask

Take a paper plate and cut it into halves.

Draw an outline as shown in the second picture near to where the curve of the paper plate starts (refer to the picture). When you draw the outline, make sure you leave some curvy portion inside.

And then cut the outer portion of the paper plate out along the outline.

Now, on the remaining part of the paper plate, draw two round eyes.

Cut the eyes out.

Take black paint and apply it on the mask as shown in the picture above.

Now, take two construction papers -yellow and orange.

We will make the feathers of the paper tail in both colors, yellow and orange.

For making the tail feathers, draw the shape of a feather as shown in the picture above. The length we took is 12 cm.

Make three paper feathers in orange color and three in yellow color. So in total, we have six paper feathers.

Now, to make the tongue and beak of the turkey, draw a triangle on a yellow paper and a curved teardrop on a red paper.

Cut both shapes out.

Step 3: Put everything together and the mask is ready!
