How to Make the Turkey Hat Craft
Cut brown foam into strips 2 inches wide by 8 inches long.
Poke a small hole in each side of the strip. Cut a length of string about 10 inches long and poke through one side of the headband. Tie into a knot. Poke the elastic through the other side but do not tie.
Cut the red foam into a waddle. Cut the orange foam into a beak.
Place the cup or circle templates on the brown foam and trace a large and small circle. Cut the circles from the foam. Glue the smaller circle over the larger circle.
Attach the turkey body to the brown headband foam strip.
On the smaller circle, attach the wiggly eyes, beak, and waddle. Allow to dry completely.
Flip the headband and attach the feathers to the back of the turkey. Allow to dry.
Place the headband on the child and gently tighten the elastic using the loose end. Remove the headband and tie the loose end in a knot. Cut any excess elastic.
