Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to learn about Native Americans. This cute craft uses your child's painted hand to create the face and feathers of a Native American child. Most children love the feeling of having their hands painted. In our preschool class, we have used the picture for a bulletin board decoration as well as the cover of our school Thanksgiving feast invitation.
