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 ´┐Żlittle 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.
