How to Make a Pudding Cup Turkey

For this project, you just need a few basic supplies which you probably already have on hand if you have a craft bin, cabinet, or closet. You’ll need scissors, cardstock (ideally red, orange and yellow), a pencil, craft glue or a low temperature glue gun, and some googly eyes. And of course, you’ll need a chocolate pudding cup snack for this pudding cup turkey.

Step 1 – Make the Feathers

Using a pencil, draw some feathers on the colored cardstock in varying lengths.

Step 2 – Cut out the Feathers

Next, you’ll use scissors to cut out the cardstock feathers.

Step 3 – Glue the Feathers to the Pudding Cup

Turn the pudding cup upside down and glue the feathers to the back of it.

Turn the pudding cup so the feathers are away from you and glue the googly eyes to the front of the cup.
