Painted Handprint Turkey Craft

We love handprint crafts in our house and love to compare this year’s handprints to those of past years to see how much our ‘little turkey’ has grown! This handprint turkey craft is a classic Thanksgiving craft that was a huge hit in our family again this year and we all got to make a turkey! These turkey handprints make great gifts for the family or great homemade Thanksgiving decorations and are easy enough for even young kids to make.

What you'll need:

  • Brown, orange, red and yellow paint
  • Paint brush
  • Paper
  • Markers
How to make this Painted Handprint Turkey
  1. Paint your child’s palm brown. Paint their fingers different colors – red, orange or yellow.
  2. Press their painted hand onto the paper to make your turkey handprint.
  3. When the handprint is dry, use markers to add an eye, feet, a waddle and a beak to the handprint to turn it into a turkey.
