Here's another one from my childhood.
This adorable turkey uses your children's hand and foot prints.
It can be used as a decoration and then saved from year to year as a keepsake.
Best of all, no two will be exactly alike, so each of your kids can make their own unique Thanksgiving turkey.
- First, take a sheet of brown construction paper and trace your child's feet.
You can do this with, or with out shoes, but you will have a more rounded turkey if you leave the shoes on.
- Cut out the feet.
Glue the heals, one on top of the other, allowing the toes to be spread apart slightly.
This will give your turkey a fuller body.
- Trace your child's hands.
Cut out several in a variety of fall colors.
- Glue the hands to the back of the feet, these will become your turkey's tail.
- Now cut out and glue a beak, wattle, eyes, and feet onto your turkey.
Additional options: - When tracing and cutting, use the reverse side, the one you have not written on, as the front of your turkey.
- The eyes can be drawn, made with construction paper, or wiggly eyes can be used for fun.
- If your turkey is flat (no wiggley eyes), you can glue the entire thing to an 11 x 17 sheet of paper and laminate it to make a place mat.
Or you can just laminate the turkey to save from year to year.
Enjoy this craft, and have a Happy Thanksgiving
