Thanksgiving Turkey Juice Box Covers
Turkey juice box Covers – Supplies that you will need:
- Juice Boxes of your choice (I used Juicy Juice)
- Construction paper (brown for the body, orange for the beak, red for the wattle and multiple colors for the feathers)
- Googly Eyes
Making Your Thanksgiving Turkey Juice Box Covers
Please Note: You will want to make sure you remove the straw from the juice box before you begin making the wrapper, otherwise it will be impossible for your child to pull out from behind the wrapper later.
First, Let’s start with a piece of brown sheet of construction paper. Placing your juice box on top to get a rough estimate for measuring.
Roll out your juice box on the construction paper. Roll enough times to make sure it will be covered. Again, there is no need for exact measurements. But if you suffer from OCD like myself the above juice box measured on my sheet of paper to be 7 ¾ x 4 ¾ inches.
Once you have measured twice (wink) you are ready to cut. Let your kids handle this part.
Once your rectangle has been cut. You can now wrap your juice box with the paper and finally glue it.
(Excuse the wet marks. My fingers had fresh clue on them when I took the photo. It got very interactive. Picture above)
As you are waiting for your juice box cover to dry, we can begin work on the tail feathers.
Out of your orange construction paper, cut an orange triangle. With the red construction paper, a small squiggle shape to be the turkey’s wattle.
It’s coming together
Next, begin cutting out the feather shapes using different colored construction paper. One year my daughter choose to make a purple & pink Turkey Juice cover. That was a lot of fun and she just loved it. All that matters, right?
Flip your juice box over so the glued seam is face up. Glue an arrangement of feathers to the back of the juice box.
Turn your juice around and on the front, attach two googly eyes, the beak and of course the wattle.
