The kids are always begging me to do crafts. So today when the weather was dreary and the kids were antsy, we pulled together some last-minute Thanksgiving crafts.
I found the idea for the first craft, painted turkey hands, at McCurdy McMemos.
I had the kids stamp their hands on some blank cards I had sitting around, and I plan to send them out tomorrow to grandparents who live far away.
We used poster paint and made sure we had five paint brushes before beginning so that I wouldn’t have to keep rinsing. Obviously, I did the painting and drew on the details. I wrote the poem suggested McCurdy McMemos on the inside, and Maggie signed her name below.
The second craft came from enchantedlearning.com. We modified the turkey to include just two handprints. Neither the kids nor I had the patience to cut out more! I especially liked this activity because it uses tracings of hands and feet. It would be great to do this again next year and compare sizes.
