We’re so excited that Thanksgiving is just around the corner! We love everything about this time of year, from the cooler weather to spending time with family and of course, the delicious food.
Another great thing about Thanksgiving is all the time to do crafts like this turkey handprint craft.
These little turkeys are so cute and they make a great decoration for your Thanksgiving table!
Plus, they’re a fun way for kids to get involved in the holiday preparations. So grab some paper and some paint and let’s get started!
Also, be sure to check out all of our turkey activities for kids for even more ideas.
If you’ve never made any handprint art and crafts with your kids, you’re really in for a treat.
It’s such a great way to get your kids’ creativity flowing and work on things like fine motor skills without them having a clue they’re doing it!
Plus, they’ll be so proud when they’ve each made their own little turkey memento.
Glue the light brown turkey belly onto the turkey’s body.
Glue the turkey beak to the middle of the turkey’s head.
Secure the snood (the red piece) to the top, side of the turkey’s beak with glue.
Glue the paper eyeballs or googly eyes to the turkey’s head, above the beak.
Glue the yellow feet onto each side of the bottom of the turkey’s body.
Trace your child’s hand onto the colored card stock of your choice (these will be the turkey’s feathers) and cut them all out.
Fan out the colored handprints out, then glue the completed turkey onto the handprints.
That’s it! Isn’t this the cutest handprint turkey craft ever?!
Now just sit back and admire the adorable turkey handprint characters your kids made!
