This adorable handprint turkey is one of our all-time favorite Thanksgiving crafts. The turkey is made by using your child's footprint as the turkey's body and your child's handprints as it's feathers. This is a great, easy craft for children of all ages, and even very young children enjoy seeing their "hands" on a gobbling turkey! We always make a turkey for each member of the family and hang them on the door as a great Thanksgiving decoration. They also make a great gift for the grandparents. Enjoy!

What You'll Need

STEP 1

Trace your child's foot onto brown construction paper and cut it out.

STEP 2

Trace your child's hand onto the red, orange, and yellow construction paper and cut out multiple handprints. TIP: Trace your child's hand on the three different colors and then stack multiple sheets to make the time go faster.

STEP 3

Cut a small triangle out of orange construction paper for a beak.

STEP 4

Cut a small peanut shape out of red construction paper for a waddle (we think that's the right term!).

STEP 5

Cut two feet out of orange construction paper.

STEP 6

Turn the footprint so that the heel is now the turkey's head. Glue your handprint feathers to the back of the body.

STEP 7

Glue on the googly eyes, beak, waddle and feet.
