child-art

Create cute crafts for Thanksgiving. Celebrate the holiday with a turkey portrait that your pint-sized Picasso can paint! This art activity is ideal for preschoolers, kindergarten-aged children and other younger kids.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard- Reuse the side of an old box instead of buying new board. Choose a box without lettering or damage.
  • Markers
  • Tempera paints
  • Paintbrushes
  • Tissue paper
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Scissors

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Draw a turkey onto the cardboard using the markers. If your child isn’t sure where to start, ask them what shapes they see in a turkey. Start with a circle or oval for the body and add another one for the head.
  2. Add a face. Have your child draw the turkey’s face onto the shapes.
  3. Paint the turkey. Pour the temperas onto a palette or another piece of scrap cardboard. Your child can create a colorful turkey for Thanksgiving!
  4. Cut feathers from the tissue paper.
  5. Glue the feathers onto the painted turkey.
  6. Let the paint dry completely. Display the turkey for the holiday.
