How to Draw and Paint a Turkey

How to Draw a TurkeyNow that October festivities have come to a close, I thought I’d make an easy downloadable pdf file to help with the next holiday challenge  – drawing a turkey. You can download my printer friendly pdf file HERE. To create the look of my finished sample, just have students draw the turkey in pencil, trace in marker, and then paint with dissolved instant coffee. The rich browns that the crystals make are really beautiful and an easy way to make your own paint.

    This was a great project to do! My 3rd graders felt a wonderful sense of accomplishment as their turkeys actually looked like real turkeys! Thanks for the post!
    {Yes, I’m writing to you in January, but I just thought of it!} Love your blog!
