While we were out and about, my three-year-old pointed out a snowman that held utensils and I thought it was cute. I figured that, while I could make the snowman, I would make a turkey since my husband is a freak about thanksgiving. I created the turkey using basic shapes and some math. The file is attached at the end for personal use.

Start by cutting all the pieces of cardstock in colors of your liking. I chose four fall colors and cut two of each size of feathers. I also cut out two of the black pieces to make a pouch for a folded napkin. I chalked the edges of all the pieces with a color to match to give it some depth. When gluing the feathers down I chose to offset the front feathers (You could also put the front feathers in line with the back ones). I then glued down the rest of the body except for the wings because I wasn’t sure the fork and knife would fit. Once I made sure they did fit, I glued just the edges of the wings to the body (If you have large utensils you may want to elongate the wings). Then I put the fork and knife in, closed the wings, and secured them with glue dots.
