These cute little LEGO turkeys are perfect for decorating the table this Thanksgiving! I’ve included instructions for building them, and this is a great project for builders of all ages.
To build a LEGO turkey, gather the bricks shown below.
Attach two 1 x 2 brown hinge plates with two fingers to two 1 x 2 black hinge plates with one finger. The black plates will be the turkey’s feet.
Add a 2 x 2 brick, a 1 x 2 plate (flat), and a 2 x 2 inverted slope.
Fold the hinge plates so that they sit at a 90 degree angle. Add a 1 x 2 brown plate with one stud on top, two eyes, and the beak. Add a 1 x 2 slope under the beak.
Add a 2 x 2 plate, and then put on the two round corner plates.
Add the last brown 1 x 2 plate under the round plates and then add the 2 x 2 brown round plate and the 2 x 2 plate.
Turn the turkey around and add 1 x 2 plates in various colors for tail feathers.
Then make more turkeys! Aren’t they cute? The boys wanted to set them up with mini figures as hunters, but I said no!
Build some pumpkins to go with them. Owen helped me create these.
This is cute enough to decorate with! Maybe a fun centerpiece idea? Or put this on the fireplace mantle? Have a great Thanksgiving!
