Thanksgiving Handprint Turkeys

Handprint crafts have always been my favorite. I love pulling out the holiday decorations that my boys have made me over the years. It's fun to see how their hands (and artistic ability) changed over the years. Here are several examples of Thanksgiving Turkey Art made using your children's hand prints.

Trace multiple handprints...one child's or more...to make this really cute turkey. Full instructions are given at the link above.

I love this handprint turkey, because it features your child's painting skills as well as showing the size of their growing hands. Full instructions are given at the link above.




Family Handprint Turkey
Here's a great way for the whole family to get involved. FamilyCorner.com has a great Family Handprint Turkey. I love it because it includes the whole family's handprints--a nice twist to the conventional handprint turkey. Here's the link containing the full instructions: http://www.familycorner.com/family/kids/crafts/construction_

Two-Handed Handprint Turkey
This next handprint turkey is a little different...plus it comes with templates for the non-handprint parts. I really like it, since you could really adapt this project to fit any bird or insect that has wings. Here's the link and instructions:

Do you have any great Turkey handprint craft ideas or links to share? If so, please share.
