Glitter Turkey

Share This Page

This sparkly turkey is a bright and fun project for the 2nd grade class. It’s a good opportunity for them to practice cutting—we stress that they cut directly on the outside of the black lines.  And of course using white glue and glitter is also fun. Different color combinations of paper and glitter make these an interesting display in the classroom or hall.
