To make your brown paper-Bag Turkey Handprint-Craft, first, choose three pieces of different color cardstock for your child’s handprint. Then, fold each piece in half vertically.
Next, offer a child to trace their non-dominant hand, making a handprint on each piece of paper. (If a child cannot trace yet, do it for them.)
Then, cut out each print. Since you folded the paper, you will end up with six prints.
Trace and cut an orange beak and a red snood.
After that, turn the bag so the flap portion is facing down. Glue the feathers first, and then glue the cut-out prints.
Lastly, turn the bag over so that the flap portion is facing you. Glue the googly eyes, the red snood, and an orange beak. Do not seal the flap shut if you want to use it as a puppet.
