There is nothing sweeter than this colorful turkey handprint craft. This Fall craft is a fun craft for your toddler or preschooler.
We love all things handprint art and this turkey handprint craft is giving us all kinds of HAPPY Fall feels.
Fall is here and it's time to bust out the Fall and Thanksgiving decorations and make all the different craft ideas to make it one HAPPY Thanksgiving.
Who doesn't love handprints crafts? Mama's love the keepsake of them. Kids will love making them too.
There is something so fun about turkey crafts. I cannot decide if its the cuteness of the animals or the critical role they play in Thanksgiving that makes me love them so much. In actuality, it is the flare of their colorful feather tails that make me love them so much.
They could be whatever color the kid (or adult) could imagine. Creativity is a fun muscle that I wish for every child to flex. What color do you want them to be is my typical response to the kids I'm teaching art to.
There is something so nostalgic about a turkey handprint. Thanksgiving is a holiday all about family and traditions from recipes to decorations. The idea of hanging my children's sweet turkey hand art up each year as I make my great-grandmother's stuffing recipe gives my heart so much joy.
We hope you treasure this turkey handprint craft as much as we do and store it for years to come!
