90’s Popsicle “Stick-Stickly” Turkey

If you were between the ages of 9-11 during 1995-1998, watching Nickelodeon after school, I’m sure you’ll know exactly who Stick Stickly is. Here’s a craft that made me drop to to my knees in awe when it brought me to my childhood. PINspired by Formula Mom’s: Craft Stick Turkey Craft. Combining  a festive craft I can enjoy with my kids, and while bringing up old childhood memories of my favorite TV shows is one of the many best parts of parenting.

Thanksgiving Turkey

Enjoy this stick-stickly craft with your children and create more pals, as well as creating a popsicle stick turkey “muppet show.” This is 90’s Nickelodeon reference. Stick Stickly is from Nickelodeon’s Nick In The Afternoon. This cool little popsicle stick figure was the TV host to my childhood afternoons after school!

Fall Leaf Turkey

I’m currently the class mom for both of my boys classrooms. The month of November I plan to share a couple crafts with both classrooms. Here’s one fall craft I plan to share. It’s a fall leaf turkey! How fitting for Thanksgiving right?! What’s great about this craft is, it gives your child time to collect leaves outside, during the fall season, then use the leaves they collected in a craft!

LeafTurkey


Here’s what you’ll need:

Leaves

Construction paper
(Colors: Red, yellow, brown)

Glue

Googly eyes

Scissors

Home items of circular shapes as a stencil.
(I used a small cup, and a candle cover.)

Circle


Directions:

  1. Using brown construction paper, trace out a large and small circle. This will be your turkeys body, and head.

  2. Using yellow construction paper, cut out legs and toes for your turkey, using stick like rectangular shapes.

  3. Glue down your turkey body, head, and legs.

  4. Take your leaves, and cut off the stem.
    (This makes its easier to glue down your leaves.)

Turkey1

Remember to remove stem off leaves.

This helps glue down the leaf easier, without the body cut out off the turkey having bulges.

Leaves


Reverse Step: You can glue down your leaves first and set to dry before gluing down the turkey body.

Glue1

If you had already glued down the body of the leaves, simply slip the fall leaves in behind the body.

This is only if the glue is still fresh and not yet set dry.

Turkey2

5.  Glue down the toes of the turkey.

6.  Continue to glue the goggly eyes, a nose with construction paper, and the turkey wattle with extra leaf scraps

Happy November! And happy crafting! Stay tuned as this month I have many more harvest Turkey crafts to share with you!
