I recommend printing the Turkey Emotions Spinner Template on 8.5x11 white cardstock paper.
Step 2: Color The Turkey Emotions Spinner Template
Now, it's time for your little artist to break out the crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Encourage them to express themselves through their art. Whether it's a happy, angry, or sad let their creativity soar. This step is not only about coloring but also a great opportunity to talk to your kids about various emotions and what they're thankful for.
Step 3: Cut Out the Turkey Emotion Spinners
Once the turkey is beautifully colored, it's time to give them some shape. Help your child carefully cut out the turkey. Be sure to use child-safe scissors, and supervise if needed, especially for younger children.
Step 4: Assemble The Turkey Emotions Spinner
Attach a brass fastener through the center of the two circles, ensuring it's secure but can still spin freely. To find the center, remember that "x" marks the spot. Make sure that the circle with faces goes on the bottom.
Step 7: Spin and Emote!
Once the characters are in place, you can spin the circle to reveal different expressions on your Thanksgiving Emotions Spinner. Have a blast mixing and matching the characters to create amusing and spooky faces!
