Cereal box turkeys

I think this cereal box project has been the most fun for me. This is the 3rd in my Cereal Box Cut-outs series. First, game. Second, mobile. Now, Thanksgiving turkeys.

Cereal box circles (or boxes and circle cutter)
glue (glue stick or craft glue)
small cardboard or foam core scraps
popsicle sticks

I set out all of my cut circles and began layering to create colorful little turkeys, not gluing until I was satisfied with the overall appearance. Experiment with the front and backsides of the cereal boxes, patterns and solids, so as not to have too many competing patterns or like colors on top of each other.
Place a large circle in back, cutting off the bottom and making slits around the rest to form the tail feathers. Choose smaller circles for the body, one or layer two. Cut one circle in half for the wings. Use the smallest circles for the head and wattle. (Sidenote: It surprised me to see how many people have googled "What's the name for that red dangly thing on a turkey's neck?")
Cut little eyes and a beak.
For added dimension, layer small pieces of cardboard or foam core board between some of the body parts. See the middle picture above.
Once you're satisfied with your design, glue.
Glue a popsicle stick on the back and poke your turkey into a plant, centerpiece (make a bunch for an all turkey centerpiece), bowl of candy or cranberries, your baked sweet potatoes, whatever.
For clip-on turkeys and turkey napkin rings, see my corresponding Cereal Box Cut-outs, Part 3: Thanksgiving turkeys post at Blissful Kids.

Those turned out amazingly cute. I may have to invest in a circle cutter to do this craft with my boys. I enjoy reading your blog and your craftyness.

Hello Megan,

My name is Amy Schellenbaum and I work for the online team at Country Living magazine. I'm working on an online Thanksgiving feature called "10 Ways to Make the Kid's Table Fun" and would love to include your idea.

If you agree, we would link to your blog on and promote the feature to all of our Facebook fans and Twitter followers. All that we would need from you is a hi-res image of the project and your permission to link to the blog.

My deadline for this is very tight, so if you could at least let me know about participating ASAP, that would be really appreciated. My email is

Thank you,

I love this craft! I am a sixth grade teacher and needed something festive for the holiday, as well as cheap and linkable to our math concepts. I was able to have students find the radius of each circle (I gave them the diameter), and the circumference of each circle. Then they had to use a compass to draw each circle. Then cut and assemble! It was perfect! Crazy hour and a half, but perfect for the concept and holiday! Thank you so much for posting this!

I was seriously at a loss for what to create/make with my second graders for a turkey project. I had lost hope and began looking for a plan B when your craft showed up on Pinterest. Thank you so much for this great and wonderful idea. We even had enough cardboard containers around the room to start this project the same day I found it.
Thank you so very much!!!!!!!
