Thanksgiving Craft: HandPrint Turkey

Keep the kids occupied with this easy handprint Thanksgiving turkey craft.

Thanksgiving is a time for family, which could mean lots of little ones running around while the adults are cooking dinner. Keep the kids occupied with a craft or two. It's not too hard to whip up a few edible treats or Thanksgiving decorations!


What you need

  • 5 sheets of construction paper
  • 1 cardboard tube (from an empty toilet paper roll)
  • Glue


  1. Place the five sheets of construction paper on top of each other. Trace your child's handprint onto the top sheet.
  2. Holding all five sheets together, carefully cut the handprint out. 
  3. Draw eyes on the cardboard tube. Cut out a small triangle-shaped beak from the leftover construction paper. Glue the beak onto the tube. Cut out a small turkey neck wattle from the paper and glue it to the tube also.
  4. Arrange the handprints behind the tube and glue them in place one by one (see photo).
