Basic Turkey Outline Coloring Page
This one is also great as a Thanksgiving Turkey Craft template. Use scrunched up tissue paper in different colors with an Autumn or Fall theme such as bright reds, burnt orange, brown and mustard yellow and glue them on to decorate the entire Turkey. Fall colors are some of my favorite colors!
With this Turkey craft template you can have an instant Thanksgiving craft project and repurpose it in so many easy ways.
