Variations on Turkey Handprint Crafts for Kids with Poem

Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I found my kids' Thanksgiving crafts from last year. They are all Turkey-themed but very simple to complete at school or at home.

Finger Paints
Apply finger paints to the child's hand, taking care to use the autumn theme colours on each finger as feathers, the palm of the hand will be brown. Press the hand directly to paper and draw in a beak and eyes. The attached poem was provided by the JK teacher last fall.

Here's the poem:
This isn't just a turkey,
 as anyone can see.
I made it with my hand,
 which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love,
 especially to say,
I hope you have a very
Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Trace the child's hand with a marker. Add a turkey face, wing and legs. Colour the fingers with crayons in autumn theme colours.

The Thank You God for Friends, Faith, Forgiveness, Food, Freedom and Family Turkey craft. This is a great photocopy reproducible for a Sunday school craft.
It would be better to photocopy the worksheet and colour the pieces before cutting.  The older children can do their own cutting.


The mom providing snacks at the Toddler Sunday School this week made this beautiful snack platter for the kids. Cheese and bread cutouts with a cookie cutter, sliced grapes and yoghurt covered raisins for the turkey feathers and half a pear, decorated with food colouring.
