Instructions

Painting the Hand

If youโ€™re doing this craft with a younger child, you will need to paint your childโ€™s hand. While older children can paint their hands themselves.

Then, start with the brown paint, and paint it on your child’s palm and then the thumb.
Next, paint the other fingers. Choose any color combination you like, as every color will become our turkey’s feathers!

Painting Tips
  • Use plenty of paint and work quickly since the paint will start to dry.
  • Use a different paintbrush for every color since you will need to work quickly.
  • Make sure to have a recycled egg carton or a paper plate or newspaper to rest the wet paintbrushes on while you work on the next color.
  • Have wet wipes ready and guide a child quickly to the sink so that they do not touch their clothes or the furniture before washing their hands.

Making a Print

Next, while a child spreads out their fingers a little, invite them to hold their hand flat and gently press the hand down onto the piece of white paper.

When it is time to lift the hand, hold the paper down, so it does stick to the wet painted hand, and ask a child to gently lift the hand off the paper without smudging the print.

How to Make A Perfect Handprint

One of the quickest ways to make a perfect handprint, press the painted hand down on canvas or heavy card stock. You can also pat the hand gently to ensure that the entire handprint will be transferred to paper. Hold the hand still for a few seconds before lifting it carefully. Make sure to keep the hand still to prevent smudging. Then, let your project dry before drawing on it or decorating it further. Lastly, remember to write a child’s name and the date.

It was easy and fun to make, and if you make them throughout the years, do compare them next to each other to notice how your child’s hand is growing.

Turkey Handprint Thanksgiving Craft Poem

This isn’t just a turkey, as you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand, which is a part of me.
This card is very special. I dipped my hand in paint,
And pressed it firmly down, so turkey isn’t faint.
I hope you will remember this keepsake, made with love,
And even years later, when I am grown up.
