Feathery Fun Turkey in 10 Steps

This week I was totally inspired by the Nurturestore’s “Let’s play dough book” and came up with these funny feathery turkeys made out of a chocolate tinted salt dough.

1. Whip up a batch of traditional salt dough (2cups flour,1 cup salt, 1cup water)  Set half of dough aside for another project. 

2. Add in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and a pinch of cinnamon to the dough for color and scent. 

3. Sort colorful feathers, googly eyes and molding tools

4. Divide dough into tennis ball sized chunks and then roll to smooth. 

5. Create a turkey body shape from the dough. 

6. Stick  feathers into dough to create a colorful  tail

7. Press googly eyes into dough

8.   Add a beak (we used yellow straw) and a wattle with red feather. 

9. Wait for dough to dry ( may take up to 3 days to be fully dried)

10. TA-daaa! Feathery Turkeys!
