This year we made handprint turkey Thanksgiving coloring cards instead of the usual handprint turkey craft. It’s cute because besides just coloring the turkeys in, the kids are designing the outlines too.

Instructions for making the coloring cards:
Have the kids make outlines of their hand on white paper. Cut around them in a square shape.
Glue these to the cardtock and cut around them again. Alternatively, cut the cardstock big enough to create a folded card. We used different colored cardstock in Fall colors.
Have the kids draw on the feet, beak, eyes, and a wattle.
Let them color in their DIY turkey Thanksgiving cards using colored pencils, markers, or crayons. They could make each turkey different and unique for each receiver.
Write, “Happy Thanksgiving!” and on the back (or inside the card if folded) they could write a short greeting, to and from, and their age + the date.
