This cute twist on the handprint turkey uses handprints from not just your child, but you too! Mom, Dad and the little one are in this cute paper project. I made this several years ago and thought it was high time I shared it here.
|Family Handprint Turkey||
- construction paper in red, yellow, orange and brown
- 2 medium googly eyes
- white craft or school glue
- Have mom (and dad) place their hand on a piece of red construction paper. Trace around their hand and cut out.
- Note: If doing this as a class project, send home a note to parents to trace their hand on white paper and send back to school with their child. When the papers are returned, lay a piece of red construction paper under the white paper and use a pen or pencil to trace the hand, the indents from the pen will show where to cut on the red paper. Alternatively, you can send home a sheet of red construction paper with each child.
- Trace the hands of each child in the family onto different colors of construction paper. Cut out.
- Starting with the largest hands, layer smallest on top of largest, glue together.
- Cut out a plump circle for the body and an oval for the head from brown construction paper. Glue on top of the smallest hand.
- Cut out a small red heart for the gobbler and orange triangle for the beak, glue in place. Glue on wiggle eyes.
- Print out the phrases below using Notepad, Word, Wordpad or similar word processing program, changing the name of the children and year if needed:
- To Mommy & Daddy with Love
- from TJ & Dominic on Thanksgiving 2011
- We will never be this size again
- keep this picture to remember when
- Cut out poems, glue first one to the top of the green construction paper and the second one to the bottom, or just use the bottom poem if you like.
