How to Make a Chalk Handprint Turkey for Thanksgiving

Sharing is caring!

As Squeaker’s tolerance for craft and art time increases, I look for more ways to incorporate that into our day. We’re pretty relaxed when it comes to doing crafts and activities though on occasion, I don’t mind doing themed/holiday crafts. And while I’m more than ready to dive into Christmas, I also realize that we needed to do some stuff for Thanksgiving.

This is our first year really celebrating Halloween with Squeaker and this year will be the first year that I really involve her with Christmas.

So what do we do for Thanksgiving? Well, aside from having her help with a few cooking tasks, we can do decorations.

We started with a simple chalk handprint turkey craft to go along with our K-Cup turkey.

The main thing to keep in mind when using chalk, is to also use a darker piece of construction paper.

Supplies needed:

Start by tracing your child’s hand with a white piece of chalk or have them do it if they’re able.

Don’t forget to add an eye and a waddle!

Next, using your glue stick, apply glue to the inside of the handprint and place feathers.

This was definitely Squeaker’s favorite part as she loves to play with the feathers. Usually we just use the feathers for sensory bins, but we may have to start doing more bird based crafts for her.

You can stop here and you have one colorful, chalk handprint turkey! Or you can have your child add a Happy Thanksgiving greeting.

Just be sure that you space yours better than we did. While I left plenty of space for “Happy” and “2016”, I ran out with Thanksgiving.
