This was my baby girl’s 1st Thanksgiving- although she is hardly a baby anymore, sniff, sniff. They grow too fast! I honestly feel like they should have to be cute, chubby, little babies for at least 2 years…. lol. This is my daughter’s 1st Thanksgiving and what better way to mark this special occasion than with a handprint turkey craft?! See how we made Baby’s 1st Thanksgiving keepsake below.

It is still kind of hard for me to get Baby Sister’s handprint because she always wants to close her hand. Because of this, I just stuck with painting the whole hand brown instead of making different colored fingers. Make handprints on a construction paper and let dry. With baby art projects, it’s nice to have wipes on hand for easy clean up.
Once dry, I drew feather details on each finger and the face details. Don’t forget the wattle and feet!
Write ‘Baby’s 1st Thanksgiving’ or similar as well as baby’s name and the date or year.
Baby Handprint Tip: Since Baby Sister’s handprint doesn’t always turn out, I made the handprints on a separate sheet of paper and cut around them. I made five prints total, but only two turned out. Then, I glued them to a colored background.
