Hand Print Turkeys


I could just be crazy, but I had little Moose's playgroup over and I thought it would be fun to make crafts with a bunch of young toddlers. 
This is a simple craft, but it can get messy with the finger paint.
What you need:
white paper
brown paper
a little bit of orange paper
finger paint
scissors
googly eyes or a some other creative things for eyes
glue


Steps:
1. Now you can do these one of two ways.  You can take your toddler's hand and cover it in paint and press it on the paper to make a hand print, or you can let them go crazy and just paint away on a piece of paper and then trace your toddlers hand and cut it out when it has dried.

2. Cut a big brown circle for the body and cut a smaller brown circle for the head and glue them on.

 

3. Cut out a little orange triangle for the beak and some feet and glue them on.


4. Pick out some stylish eyes for your little turkey and stick them on and you're done!

For my playgroup, I went and made all the turkey bodies ahead of time.  With so many toddlers running around I wanted to make it as simple as possible.


The mommies thought I was crazy to have white chairs...



Enjoy!
