A fun Thanksgiving idea for creating “Coffee Filter Turkeys”




K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5  


Title – Coffee Filter Turkeys
By – Jamie Rhodes
Subject – Art
Grade Level – K-5
Materials: coffee filter per child, markers, paper plate per child, spray bottle of water, body of a turkey.
Instructions: Give each student a coffee filter and a paper plate. Students use their markers to color the coffee filter. They can make patterns with their markers or scribble on the filter. I suggest that they color their filter on their paper plate. When colored spray the coffee filter (which has been placed on the paper plate) with water. The colors should begin to run creating a mixture of colors. Let dry. I usually let them dry overnight. Create a body of a turkey and place it in front of the coffee filter (which serves as the feathers). Hang for others to enjoy.
