Craft Project: Handprint Turkey

The kids will love making these turkeys from their handprints, and very few supplies are needed. They can be used for decorations or glued to a piece of card stock to create Thanksgiving cards for family and friends.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes


  • Various colors of construction paper
  • scissors
  • craft glue
  • wiggly eyes
  • card stock (optional)
  • pencil


Using a pencil, trace around a child's hand onto colored construction paper and cut out. Using the cut out hand as a pattern, cut out two more hands in different colors. Trim the fingers on two of the hands so they are graduated in size. Glue the three hands together so they are staked one on top of the other. Cut a plump circle body and oval head from brown or other color construction paper. Glue on top of the smallest hand. Cut out a small red heart for the gobbler and an orange or yellow teardrop for the beak. Glue these in place. Glue on wiggly eyes.

This is a new idea using the drawing of the hand picture. How many times have we used this niffty idea to entertain youngsters? We never fail to come up with more cute ideas!! Thanks Angela for another version of the turkey drawing.

This sure brings back memories. I remember doing this in either kindergarten or grade school, and I'm 51!

These are so cute, I have done them with the grandkids and made up sugar cookie dough and made turkey cookies also.
