Printable Build a Turkey Coloring Page

This activity is sized to print on an 8.5×11 inch page. You can either print on regular printer paper, or for even better quality, you can use white cardstock.

Feel free to print as many copies of the Build A Turkey activity as you would like. However, please do not edit or redistribute the files in any way. They are created for personal use only.

All you need to create your own turkey is the printable, scissors, glue, and some crayons, markers or colored pencils. Have the kids color in the shapes and then cut them all out.

As an extra little activity, you can have them write 6 things they are thankful for this year on each of the feathers.

Next, glue the shapes together to build your very own turkey!

If you’re not sure where some of the pieces go, you can always reference the completed turkey picture at the bottom right side of the printout.

Not only is this build a turkey printable a fun Thanksgiving themed activity, but it’s also a great way to have your kids to take the time and think about what they are are grateful for. It will definitely keep them busy for a while!

How nice would this turkey look hanging on your refrigerator or on the wall when all your guests come over for Thanksgiving dinner?! I’m a big fan of hanging all of my son’s craft projects up any chance I get!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.

All you need for this fun game is the printable game board, a few dice and a bowl full of M&Ms. Have the each player roll a dice and depending on the number that it lands on, place a certain colored M&M onto the turkey’s feathers.
