Stick Them To The Plate

Next comes the favorite part of kids which is to stick all these cuttings together onto the plate and see your creation coming live. Glue the feather handprints cut from the backside of the plate making a fan. Then, glue the nose and red wattle of the turkey at the front side of the plate. Do not forget to add the googly eyes.
