How adorable is this TP Roll Turkey craft? My little guy wanted to make his own little turkey after looking at all the cool crafts on Pinterest. We had already made a cute TP roll peacock and I thought a turkey in the same style would look awesome too. I just love how he turned out!
Here’s what we used
Brown paint and pa
Sticker eyes (optional)
How to make our TP roll turkey craft
First, take your TP roll. Coat it in your brown paint and then put it aside to dry.
Whilst your TP roll is drying, take your paper plate and cut it in half. Put one half aside and keep the other.
Use your glue to stick your colored feathers in an arch around your paper plate. You may need to do two layers to cover the gaps.
Once your TP Roll is dry, add two eyes and the Turkey’s beak pieces.
Next, cut out two foot shapes and fold a tab on each one. Use this tab to to glue your feet inside the bottom of your tp roll and then fold the feet outwards.
Cover the back of your TP roll in glue and then line it up centrally and inline with the bottom of your plate before sticking it down. Your TP roll turkey is finished! Doesn’t he look awesome?
Birds have been a popular topic in our house the last couple of days. Yesterday we made a gorgeous tp roll Peacock and today this cute and simple parrot pal. My son loves to dress up as a Pirate and go on little treasure hunts around the house and this little parrot makes the perfect pirate accessory. They’re really easy to make and cost barely anything too!
You will need
Toilet roll/cardboard tube
White & yellow paper
quick drying glue
Start off by covering your Tp roll in red paint and then put it aside to dry.
Once your parrot’s tp roll body is dry, take two long feathers and glue one either side to make two wings.
take a 5-6 multicoloured feathers and glue them down in a bunch on the back of the parrot’s body. put aside to dry the feathers in place.
whilst waiting for the body piece to dry you can make your parrots face. Cut out two small white circles or ovals for the eyes and use a marker pen to draw on some pupils. to make the break fold a piece of yellow paper in half and cut out a triangle using the fold as the bottom of the triangle. This will give you this perfect folded diamond beak.
Glue on your Parrots facial features and he is finished. So simple and easy!
If you have been to this blog before you will know that my son and i love animals. Our favourite days out are spent going to animal sanctuaries. Birds are a species that are easily overlooked, they’re not as tall as a giraffe or as cool as a lion but they are certainly beautiful! My niece and nephew recently gifted my son with a peacock feather and this inspired my son to make his own peacock pal. After a bit of playing around we eventually came up with this little cutie – doesn’t he look fab!
Here’s what we used.
Blue paint and paintbrush
Eye stickers (optional)
How to make our TP roll peacock.

Whilst your peacock’s body is drying you can work on the tail. Take your paper plate and cut it in half. Keep one half and put the other aside.
Glue your coloured feathers down following the shape of your paper plate.
Once your peacock body is dry you will need to make his face. Give him two little eyes and a folded triangle beak.
Cut out two little elongated feet and fold a tab at the end of each one. Use these tabs to stick your feet inside the bottom of your TP roll, then fold your feet outwards.
