Today we decided to do an art project for Thanksgiving. The little girl I babysit always love to have her hands and fingers covered in paint so we decided to make handprint/fingerprint turkeys! They were super easy to make and she had so much fun doing it. I think this would be a great activity for classrooms or just kids in your family on Thanksgiving Day!
Start by dipping their thumb in brown paint and making a body shape. Then have them dip their pointer finger in each color (red, yellow, orange) and make dots to look like turkey feathers. Glue on some googly eyes, paint a yellow beak, and draw some turkey legs!
Paint your childs hand brown on just the bottom half (include the thumb!) and paint the rest of the fingers a different color. Have them stamp their hand down on a piece of white paper. Once that dries, add a googly eye, beak, and legs.
