Turkey hand print craft

I love easy seasonal crafts that are fun for the kids to make and can be displayed around the house. We made this cute handprint turkey craft with my youngest at our local Strong Start. I loved the idea so much I had to share it here so you can also get your child into the Thanksgiving spirit!

The iconic Thanksgiving turkey makes a classic piece of holiday art decoration and it is super easy to make!

What You Will Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Brown, yellow, green, red and any other seasonal colours of washable hand paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Black marker
  • Googly eye stickers

How To Do It:

  1. Paint the thumb and palm of your little one’s hand brown, for the turkey’s head and body.
  2. Paint the other four fingers with the remainder colours, for the feathers.
  3. Get your little one to stamp his hand onto the piece of construction paper. Press down on their hand gently and wait a few seconds. Remove their hand carefully.
  4. Ask your child to draw the legs with the marker.
  5. Add the googly eyes.
  6. Allow to dry.

Super fun and easy!
