Step 1. To begin these Foamies marshmallow turkey crafts, have children paint a craft “marshmallow” completely brown. Set aside to let that dry completely. Repeat for each turkey you want to make.
Step 2. Grab your red and orange craft felt. Go ahead and cut out a small triangular beak from the orange, as well as a waddle from the red. Repeat for each piece.
Step 3. Now it’s time for the assembling. Grab a few feathers and glue them to one side of the painted foam marshmallow. Follow that up by gluing the cut felt pieces, as well as two wiggle eyes on the other side, to give the piece life. Then set it all aside to let it dry completely before displaying/playing with proudly!!!
