Turkey of Thanks

ages 2-6


White paper, black marker, crayons

Activity Detail

This fun art project helps children focus on things they are grateful for. To make the turkey, trace around one hand of the child on white paper. Enclose the space left by the wrist and add legs to the bottom. Draw wattle, beak, and eyes on the thumb (head). Ask your child what she is thankful for (she may need some help getting started) and write one thing on each finger (feather). Then your child can color the turkey with crayons. We hang ours on the wall to remind us of the reason for the holiday. And my kids always enjoy getting to share their thanksgivings with their grandparents.
