Turkey Handprints

ages 1-6


Paint and paper

Activity Detail

This is a great activity to do year after year to see how big your kids are getting! Paint the palm of your child's hand brown and then add colorful "feathers" by painting their fingers. Press your child's hand on the paper. Draw feet and the turkey wattle and eye. Do both hands and you can have a pair of turkeys looking at each other.

This activity is a classic and is not particularly original, but it's fun and a nice way to remember how small your children's hands once were. It can be embellished upon by painting the palm and thumb (which is the turkey's head) brown, while painting the 4 fingers in various harvest colors. You can draw on a beak and legs and glue a googly eye onto the head. Using white paper glued onto larger harvest-colored paper in orange or brown, creates a nice frame. Also, make sure to write down your child's name and the year on the picture.
