There are tons and tons of ideas for Thanksgiving arts and crafts for kids readily available simply by looking on the web. Of course, there are a lot of turkey crafts that you can make. But today, I’m providing you several pictures for fun and probably my favorite Thanksgiving Turkey arts and crafts for kids. Our boys loved this craft simply because they got to get their hands and feet painted!
Washable Kids Paints-red, brown, yellow, and orange
plate (to put paint on)
red and orange construction paper
Start by painting each of your kiddo’s hands one color. Once you’ve painted their entire hand, place it on the sheet of white paper. You’ll need two handprints of each color. You can either paint one hand or paint both. Once you’re done with your first color, wash your hands and start your next color. When done painting their hands, it’s time to move on to their feet. Paint their feet brown and their toes orange. Then have them step on the white sheet of paper to make a footprint. (you can always fill in spots that didn’t get coverage of the foot).
Let your handprints and footprints dry entirely. Then cut them all around those handprints and footprints. You should have eight little handprints and two little footprints.
Time to put them all together! The heel of your kiddo’s footprint will be the head of the turkey, and the hands will be the plumes. Take another white sheet of paper and glue the handprints on each side towards the bottom of the sheet. Once glued, take your footprint, place its toes facing down on top of the feathers, and glue down. Next, cut out a red teardrop and an orange triangle with construction paper and place them on the turkey’s head as a beak and a talon. Finally, glue an eye above the brim and let dry.
On top of the paper, you can add your child’s name, a thanksgiving saying or quote, or anything else you’d like. We glued three hearts in the middle and a happy thanksgiving on the left side. Make sure to write your child’s name and date it on the back. There you have it, a fun turkey craft!
How to Make a Thanksgiving Turkey Craft in 3 Easy Steps is just one of the numerous suggestions for Thanksgiving arts and crafts that you can find online.
