I am always trying to think of ideas to make holidays a little more fun for my children. I decided to make these easy Thanksgiving Turkey Sodas.

Soda at our house is a treat for my girls and I thought they would love to have their root beer decorated like fun turkeys. This is easy to make. In fact, you could set out the items on Thanksgiving and have the kids at your house make their own.

Supplies needed

Plastic soda bottle (I used A&W root beer) 
gold or orange felt
glue dots
Note: I first tried this project using craft glue. It does not dry very fast, so it was very hard to use. The eyes would have been fine, but the feathers were a problem. That is why I switched to using glue dots instead. They are very sticky and work perfectly for this.

1. Remove label from the soda bottle.

2. Place a glue dot on the back of the eyes and then put them on the soda bottle. The easiest way to get the glue dot off of the paper is to place the item onto the glue dot, then remove the glue and item together. The glue dots are very sticky and hard to work with if you try to take them off with your fingers.

3. Using the glue dots, place the feathers onto the back of the soda bottle.

Depending on the length of the feather and where you want to position them, you may have to put the glue dots higher up the feather.

Isn't this turkey looking cute already? I love the colorful feathers!

4. Next cut a small triangle from the felt and attach it to the bottle underneath the eyes.

That's it! 4 steps for this simple and fun way to decorate a plain soda bottle. Easy for you to make in about 3 minutes. Plan on about 10 minutes for kids to make it. This can keep them busy while you are finishing up meal prep or placing all your tasty holiday dishes on the table.
