Colorful turkey hands

17 11 2009

Making turkey hands is an easy and classic Thanksgiving art craft!

First, trace your hand on a sheet of paper and use the outline of your hand as the body of the turkey. Then there are lots of different ways you can decorate your turkey.

I painted one of my turkeys with watercolor paint—it dries quickly! For my second turkey, I used markers to write things I’m thankful for in the “feathers.”

Other creative ways to decorate and use your turkey hands:

-Glue on corn kernels, rice grains or other seeds to give your turkey texture

-Cut your turkey out and tape it on your window to make a window cling

-Or, cut out multiple turkeys and write the names of all your family members to make Thanksgiving dinner table place cards

-Tear or cut pieces of magazines and glue them inside your turkey to make a turkey-shaped collage

What are some other things you can do with your turkey hands?
