Below are the directions on how to make each of the four characters we created! We can’t wait to see what your kids come up with as well!
Among Us Turkey Disguise
We all know Among Us is super popular with the kids (we even created an Among Us paper bag puppet)!
To turn your turkey into an Among Us character is very easy. First, choose your skin color. We went with red.
Print out the whole turkey with no facial features on the paper, then cut it out.
Print out the character template page and cut out the Among Us printables.
Use a light blue marker to fill in the mask. Glue this to the middle of the turkey’s face.
Use a yellow marker to draw on the details for the party hat, then glue the party hat to the top of the head.
That’s it! So simple and very trendy!
Pete The Cat Turkey Disguise
We love Pete the Cat and with the newest book, He’s a character that’s top of mind at the moment!
To begin creating your Pete turkey, print out the whole turkey without a face template onto white cardstock.
Use crayons or markers to color the feathers yellow (like Pete’s shirt). Use a blue marker to color in the turkey body.
Color Pete’s eyes with a yellow-orange marker, then glue the eyes in the middle of the head.
Next, color Pete’s ears and glue them to the top of the turkey head.
Glue Pete’s nose in the middle of the head, just below the eyes.

Finish by coloring in the buttons and then gluing them in the middle of the body.
Now you’re done! Isn’t it so silly?!
Pikachu Turkey Disguise
Another character that we love is Pikachu! Pokemon has been around forever, so we knew we had to create one for all the fans.
Begin by printing the whole turkey without a face on a yellow piece of cardstock.
Use a black marker to draw black tips at the end of the feathers, so it looks like Pikachu’s ears.
Take the eyes and glue them to the middle of the head, then glue the cheeks below and slightly outside the eyes.
Use your black marker to draw on a tiny nose and mouth.
Finish by cutting out the turkey and then you’re all done!
Forky Turkey Disguise
Disney fans are going to love this cute and easy Forky turkey disguise!
Begin by printing the whole turkey without face template on white paper.
Use a red marker to color in the second feather from the bottom on each side. This is going to represent Forky’s hands.
Color in the Forky template pieces and cut them out.
Take the spork topper and glue it to the top of the turkey’s head.
Next, glue his eyebrows along the bottom of the spork topper.
