It seems those itty-bitty hands grow bigger overnight. That’s one reason so many parents love handprint crafts.
I’m a sucker for handprint crafts, myself. Watching my children as they finished this colorful turkey craft, I knew this would be a craft I would keep for years to come.
This simple handprint turkey is a fun toddler or preschooler craft for Thanksgiving or fall.
Hand and Footprint Turkey Craft
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 handprint turkey craft for each child. Be sure to put the date on the back of them because you’ll want to keep these cuties!
