Thanksgiving Craft: Handprint Turkeys
These easy Thanksgiving craft projects for kids will let children unleash their inner artists — and free you to prep Thanksgiving dinner.
This classic turkey craft is both a fun seasonal craft and a reminder for the future of how tiny those little hands once were. The idea is simple -- paint the palm of your child's hand brown and each finger and the thumb a different color, then press onto a blank surface and use a pen to add feet, eyes, and a beak. But you can put your own spin on the project in nearly endless ways: Instead of paper, put the print on a t-shirt, plate, canvas, or picture frame. And if your little one won't sit still for a painted palm, trace an outline of his hand instead and cut out several to look like feathers for a paper turkey.
