Simple & Fun: LEGO Turkey

Lego Turkey

These cute little LEGO® turkeys are perfect for decorating the table this Thanksgiving! 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?
