Last year about this time I was
20 months 8 months pregnant, so I was looking for a very simple craft to do to with Monkey for Thanksgiving.
Since we live so far away from both sides of our family, I decided to make these adorable hand print turkey cards to send to Monkey’s grandparents and some close friend.
They were easy enough to prepare and required only as much from my not-so-into-crafts child as he felt like doing.
First I traced his hand onto cardboard (from a cereal box) then used this as a template to trace it onto brown construction paper.
Then I cute out some cute little hats for the turkeys and pulled out the construction paper, glue, crayons, and our sticker collection.
We glued the turkeys and their hats onto the paper then I drew the outlines of the beaks and wattles and let him color them in.
As you can see, I also let him choose which stickers he wanted to use – which is why the turkeys are decorated with these beautiful spring flowers, lol!
Are you and your little turkeys ready for Thanksgiving?
