steps

  1. Download and print the Turkey Hat template. Cut out from paper using scissors. Trace onto butcher paper and cut out as many as needed for your crew. (Note: Two cut-outs for each person is ideal—gluing two together makes a sturdier headband.)

  2. Cut 12-inch half-circles out of scrapbook paper for tails, and cut notches into edges. Wrap a turkey crown around each child's head to fit, then secure with dots of glue or staples; attach a tail to each the same way.
