Handprint Turkey

I mean really....what CAN'T you do with a handprint?!

  • Paper - cardstock weight
  • Tempera Paint - in colors brown, red, orange, and yellow
  • Paint Brushes - one for each color
  • Black Sharpie Marker
  • Crayons, colored pencils or markers - whatever you have
  • Hand (of course)

Paint the palm of the hand and thumb with the brown paint and then paint the remaining four fingers with the other colors.
Like So...

Place the hand on paper to make the print and let it dry...dry time should be about 5 minutes or less.

The thumb print is the Turkey's head.  With the Sharpie marker draw an eye and legs & feet.  With your other drawing supplies (crayons, colored pencils, markers) add the remaining features of the turkey...beak & gobbler.  Now, give your turkey a pretty background!  Have your ankle-biters fill in the rest of the page with their very own scene.  The End!  Have fun and get messy! ~ Miss Jenna :-)

  1. We're doing this tomorrow! I can't wait. I hope it turns out half as good as your examples are :) Henry is so excited, he could barely contain himself at bedtime.
