    Thanksgiving Craft: Hand Turkey

    And just like THAT Halloween is over! We are moving onto the next holiday – Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be happier. I started WAY TOO EARLY this year with Halloween and had all my decorations out before Fall even started. Anxious much?? LOL!

    Thanksgiving is such a great holiday because it’s all about food, family and making memories. Here’s a craft from Kaboose to get you started.

    Making Your Hands-and-Feet Turkey

    Step 1 – Trace the child’s hands and feet

    1. Trace two feet (with shoes on) on brown construction paper.
    2. Trace two hands on tan construction paper.
    3. Trace two hands on red construction paper.
    4. Trace two hands on orange construction paper.
    5. Trace one hand on yellow construction paper.

    Step 2 – Cut out all the pieces

    Cut out all the hands and feet tracings.


    Step 3 – Make the Body

    Put the two feet tracings together to make the turkey body and head, placing the heels together one on top of another, and spreading the bottoms apart as in the illustration. Glue.

    Cut two feet out of the orange scraps, then cut a diamond shape for the beak. Draw the eyes on white paper and cut them out, or use wiggle eyes. Make the wattle out of red construction paper. Glue each piece onto the body as shown.

    Step 4 – Attach the tail

    Glue the red, orange, and yellow construction paper hands behind the brown body to make the tail.

    Step 5 – Wings

    Position the two tan hands on either side of the body to make the turkey’s wings and glue them in place.

    2. I found that used just one foot cut-out instead of two makes it look less phallic. Also, I didn’t have googly eyes so I made eyes out of white paper and pen for the pupils.

      Thanks for your instruction! We have a cute family of turkeys we decorated our wall with for Thanksgiving tomorrow.
