One of my favorite holidays is coming up, really fast if you’re in Canada like me, Thanksgiving! Last year we sent out some cute mail to our family, a little “we’re thinking of you even if we’re not with you” a cute turkey handprint craft.
Thanksgiving Turkey Handprint Craft

It’s super simple, perfect for your youngest, and makes a great keepsake. All you need is paint and paper. A paint brush is helpful but not necessary.
Take the turkey hand and paint it. Brown on the palm and thumb – the turkey body and neck/head. Paint each finger a different color.
Press said hand down onto paper. Little fingers move, let it be what it is, it just makes it unique to each child’s work of art.
Once your turkey has dried grab a couple markers for the finishing touch. Some yellow legs and feet. An eye, we used black. As well red for the wattle. <— if that is wrong, let me know, I had to look up what that was called.
These are what we sent out, Grandparents got one from each of my little turkeys.
I have more printables in my free resource library that you get access to when you sign up to my weekly newsletter. The the turkey printable is available for you now, without signing up though I would love for you to sign up.
