Paper Handprint Turkey Craft

Paper Handprint Turkey Craft

My daughter and I have been busy the past few weeks making crafts for Thanksgiving. I especially love making handprint crafts, which help me lock a small piece of my kids in time. Recently my daughter and I made some simple paper handprint turkeys. My daughter also insisted that she include some handprints from her brother in her artwork.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Trace your child’s hand on a sheet of blank paper.
  2. Use the tracing to cut handprints from the red, orange, yellow, and brown construction paper.
  3. Cut a figure 8 shape from another sheet of brown paper.
  4. Glue the handprints to the top back of the figure 8 to create turkey feathers.
  5. Cut a small triangle from the yellow paper and a wiggly shape from the red paper.
  6. Glue two wiggle eyes to the top center of the figure 8.
  7. Glue the yellow triangle under the wiggle eyes with the point pointing down.
  8. Glue the red wiggly shape to the side of the yellow triangle.
