Kids’ Thanksgiving Hand-Print Turkey Ideas

kids' crafts

Hand-print turkeys are a staple when it comes to kids’ Thanksgiving art activities. Trace your tot’s hand, cut the hand-print out, use paper and glue (or markers) to add a face and that’s it. Now you have a blank slate to create a terrifically cute turkey! If you’re not sure how to dress the turkey (that is, the paper one), check out these easy, artsy options.

Shaving Cream

Instead of painting on feathers with regular temperas, make your own puffy paint. Add water colors to shaving cream, mix and spread the paint across the hand-print turkey. You can also add liquid or powdered tempera paint.

Hand-print Hand-print

Pour a pool of colorful tempera paint onto a paper plate. Or, pour a few. Your child can dip their hands into the paint, press the paint onto the turkey and create a hand-print on a hand-print.

Glitter Turkey

Paint a wash of clear-drying school glue onto the turkey with a medium-sized brush. Sprinkle glitter over the glue and shake off the excess.

Texture Collage

Tear or cute apart fall-colored tissue paper. Bunch the paper into fluffy balls and glue it to the turkey to create a textured effect.

Crayon Colors

Toddlers and young preschoolers can practice their fine motor skills with this easy idea. Give your child a rainbow crayons and let them get creative, scribbling and coloring the hand-print turkey.
