Here are the supplies you need: empty tissue boxes, glue, wiggly eyes, and colorful paper cut into feathers, and brown paper cut into a turkey body.  We just freehand cut the shapes using card stock.  The feathers are about 8 inches long, cut the length of the short sides of pieces of card stock.  They don’t need to perfect or symmetrical.  We just roughly made the body the size of our tissue box with the head sticking up a little bit higher.

Spread glue on one side of the tissue box in a triangle as shown:

We let ours dry for a few minutes while we cut out the beak and made little bow ties and gobblers.
