Add a handprint pilgrim or a handprint Native American to your collection of handprint turkeys this Thanksgiving season! This is a simple, fun Thanksgiving craft made with paper and crayons, but is better suited to a slightly older child capable of drawing on their own. These cute handprint characters make great Thanksgiving decorations as well.

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper
  • Crayons
Make a Pilgrim
  • Trace your child's hand. Exclude the thumb, and make sure that their fingers are very close together.
  • At the base of the fingers on the handprint, use a black crayon to draw a brim of a hat. Color the fingers black to finish the hat, adding a yellow buckle if you like.
  • Color the palm of the hand a flesh tone, adding some hair right below the hat.
  • Add on the facial features for your pilgrim.
Make a Native American
  • Trace your child's hand. Exclude the thumb, and make sure that their fingers are spread apart.
  • At the base of the fingers on the handprint, use a brown crayon to draw a headband. Color the fingerprints red, orange, or yellow to look like feathers.
  • Color the palm of the hand a darker flesh tone, adding some hair right below the headband.
  • Add on the facial features for your Native American boy.
