Paper Plate Turkey Centerpiece Craft Kit
The Kids loved making these for Thanksgiving!
We bought these for our 2/3 yr old sunday school kids to make for Thanksgiving. They had fun making them and they were easy for them to assemble.

This looked easier to make than it actually was because of the materials, and how it came packaged. Tried to make one of these as an example for my daughter's 2nd grade class, but ended up throwing it in the trash. The main tube piece was crushed, making it difficult for anything that was glued on with regular school glue to stick to it. Perhaps using a glue gun, as other reviewers suggest, will work better. It was also missing a piece that was not included in the extra pieces bag. I would recommend just having kids fill in the feathers of what they're Thankful for, and just gluing them & the sign to the paper plate backing, rather than messing with the body of the turkey & its pieces! It's not worth the aggravation!

I wished I read reviews first
I got this project for my Second graders. I wished I would have read the reviews first. You defiantly need a glue gun! I used glue dots because they have worked well in the past for other projects . They did not work well at all. The turkeys stayed together for a little while but once the students touched them they seemed to just fall apart!

Nice idea, poor execution
The turkey body tube was smashed, on every single one of them, and I bought 24 of these. That makes it really difficult to glue the hat on. I put one together and my daughter came home and commented that it looks like my 5 year old boy made it. Also what they show in the picture as being a blue ribbon around the hat is only a really thin blue cord. It is a really great idea, but the quality just isn't there.

review of turkey centerpiece
I was not pleased with this craft at all. The body of the turkey was poorly made and the brim of the hat would not glue on. We had to modify the project to make them, using paper rolls. Please do more quality control.

Read the reviews, and prepared to make adjustments and re-make some items...I have been crafting for years and had a hard time with the brim of the hat...been buying from OTC for years and this is the first time I have been very disappointed. Like another reviewer stated the saving grace would be the children can write what they are thankful for, but I am not sure I am even going to submit this as a craft...bought these for a Brownie Girl Scout troop.

Not very easy...
The rolls were squashed, not very round. The hat is very difficult for an adult. I would not purchase these again...

Poor quality.... 9 yr old couldn't even do it!!!
I bought this for my older daycare children. Ages 7-11. None of them could get these together. The rolls were smashed, nothing fit the way it should have. We ended up throwing it all away :( What a waste of money!!!
