Colander and Pipe Cleaners = Turkey

Colander and Pipe Cleaners = Turkey

Colanders have lots of holes, so this "turkey-making" project keeps kids busy. For a long time. It's a perfect distraction when you are trying to prep for Thanksgiving!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. colander
  2. pipe cleaners
  1. Just stick the pipe cleaners into the holes in the colander where ever you'd like-- you can also bend them over to make feathers, wings, a tail, and a head.

  2. During the course of making our turkey, my son declared it a "fire boat", added hoses to it, and removed its head.

  3. During naptime mommy turned it back into a turkey for demo purpose.

  4. Such easy set up and tons of fun--when you're done, you can pull all the pipe cleaners out and start again!
