There are many variations of this particular craft, some just use an outline of a hand, this one incorporates both hands and feet and I like it because it also helps my son develop fine motor skills when he traces his hand and cuts out the tracing. We both joined in with cutting out the hands that are used as feathers and we had a great time!
So without further ado, here is our rendition of a Thanksgiving Turkey Kid's Craft (all of the materials are from Walmart).
To start you'll need:
Red, orange, yellow and brown construction paper (I couldn't find brown so my son colored white paper)
Trace two hand outlines on the red, yellow and orange construction paper. Cut out each shape.
Trace your child's feet on brown construction paper (if not available just use white and color it brown like we did) and cut it out.
Placing the heels at the top, glue together the feet to form the turkey body.
Next, glue the hand prints onto the back of the turkey body to form the wings.
Cut out a wobble from the red paper and cut out an orange beak. Glue to turkey face.
Cut orange pipecleaner make two long pieces and two shorter pieces.
Wrap smaller piece of pipe cleaner around long piece to make claw.
