Since the kids will be out of school, why not let them help you decorate? These little turkeys are easy to make and look darling on the table. You could also make a larger one to hold chips, popcorn, or other snacks.


construction paper (brown and orange for the feet and beak, as well as the colors you want thedirections for folding the cup feathers to be.)
scotch tape
Feathers, googly eyes


1. Make an origami cup by cutting a brown piece of paper into a square. Fold the square horizontally to make a triangle.
2. Hold the triangle so that the longest side is at the bottom and the point(a) is up and then fold each tip(a) down to the base to make a crease, then put them back up. (You are only creasing and going back to the triangle.)
3. Fold each of the base point(b) to the middle of the opposite side.
4. Now fold the points(a) back down. (One side will cover the two tips(b) that are folded up. This is your turkey’s body.
5. Cut a beak by folding a piece of orange paper and cutting a triangle (leave the fold as the base side of the triangle.)
6. Cut out a waddle, feathers and feet (that are wide enough to support the rest of the turkey.)
7. Glue the pieces together and fill the cup with candy or trailmix and write the names of your guests on the feet if you want to use them as place cards.
