With our Tree of Thanks looking more colorful every day, it was time to add a few turkeys to the decor. And I just couldn’t resist trying out these cute hand and footprint turkeys I found in a craft book at the library.
Want a few to decorate your doors?
First trace your child’s feet on brown paper; don’t bother tracing around their toes! Glue the heels of the footprints together to form the turkey’s head.
Next trace their hands on several colors of paper. Glue 5 hand prints to the turkey’s back to form his tail. Glue 2 to his front to form wings.
Finally, cut out eyes, beak, wattle, and legs and glue to turkey.
The result is a completely unique turkey for each child. (I put the date on the back of ours so we can compare in a few years!)
Have a turkey craft of your own? I’d love to include it in my future turkey craft round-up post — just leave me the link in a comment below and I’ll check it out!
