Step 1. Gather your supplies.
Apply Finger Paint onto your child’s hand and press the hand onto a piece of card stock. Tip: Make sure to press down on each finger and palm to get a good impression.
Once the handprint it dry, you will need to cut out the handprint. For preschool age children, it might be helpful for an adult to draw a line around the turkey shape for the child to follow. This is a helpful technique to practice hand/eye coordination.
Using scissors cut out the shape drawn.
Glue (1) Wiggly Eye onto the thumb of the handprint. This will be the turkey’s head.
Cut a small triangle out of a piece of yellow construction paper and glue onto the turkey’s head as a beak.
Glue colored Feathers to the fingers of the handprint. Tip: if the feathers are too long for this area, trim with scissors before gluing. You have made a handprint turkey!
Cut a cardboard paper roll into a 2 or 3 inch section (depending on the size of the handprint turkey). Glue the paper roll to the back of the handprint turkey as shown.
On Thanksgiving, roll your napkin into a tube shape and slip inside paper roll. Place a setting at each seat and allow guests to enjoy these lovely Handprint Turkey Napkin Rings!
