I LOVE Pinterest, it can be so addicting! I was looking up Thanksgiving crafts recently and I came across hand turkey’s. I added my own twist on it, adding the pilgrim hats and the hairbow and a few more things.
Here are our my kids turkey handprint — I call them our turkey kids!

Materials needed:
Card Stock
Clothes Pins
Crayons, Scissors, Pencil
Googly eyes
I traced all 4 of my children’s hands, cut them out and had them color them – their color choice
then they painted their clothes pins (I painted & colored the baby’s)
Then they glued the googly eyes on, out of scrap paper I made the wattles and we glued them on. I made free hand the pilgrim hats for my boys and I took thin ribbon and we glued a hairbow on my daughter’s turkey. Then when the clothes pins dried we opened them up and clipped on their “legs”.

I will keep these for next year – these are one of my favorite crafts we have done – I think next year we will do the whole family including my husband &  I and hopefully another baby 😉 making it a family of 7.
