My three year old always wants to make projects with me. I have been busy trying to come up with crafts for her to do.
Kids love to do projects where they get to used their handprints and this turkey made of their own handprints is easy and fun to make with your small children. Plus, it's a nice keepsake.
Bigger ones like doing it too!
We traced her hand and cut out two hands each in Fall colors. We glued them together, overlapping.
I cut out a gourd shaped body too.
My girl is really into gluing things right now and loved making this, especially the eyes. She is such a good speller, even if she couldn't fit the is between Gigi and Grateful !
OK, that was me...
The gluing fanatic also got to cover the whole thing with Mod Podge to make it last for more than one Thanksgiving. I glued some popsicle sticks to secure it to the back and a twine string to it to hang it up.
I love to get out the kids old crafts every holiday and my older ones get a kick out of seeing things they made when they were little.
