Shape Turkey for Preschoolers

Free Printable Shape Turkey Craft

Little Brother and I  had a great time making these Shape Turkeys for Preschoolers! Creating them together gave me the perfect opportunity to review some of the trickier shapes (like octagon and rhombus) while still creating a super-cute Thanksgiving craft!


Here’s what you’ll need:  Shape Turkey Printable and either markers, crayons, paint, dot markers, or stamps. We chose to make our own shape stamps using some old wooden blocks and sticky-backed felt. The idea was to match the stamp to the larger shape.

  1. This will be a perfect activity to give the preschoolers and toddlers in our preschool co-op! Love that it also gives us an opportunity to talk an out shaped and colors :-)

  2. Hi! My 7 year old son found this and requested we make it yesterday. What a hit! All 4 of my kids had fun doing it. We used our crazy dots markers to color them and they all put their own touch to their turkeys. Thanks so much for the free printable! You made our homeschool day more fun!
