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

Colander and Pipe Cleaners = Turkey

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.

Colander and Pipe Cleaners = Turkey

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

Colander and Pipe Cleaners = Turkey

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

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

My child and I completed Colander and Pipe Cleaners - even my 15 month old could do this :)
