My kids and I have been busy making Thanksgiving crafts the past few weeks. My little guy thinks this handprint turkey thanksgiving wreath we made together is so cute. He is obsessed with drawing handprint turkeys (all year round…Lol), so it was nice to get him to make a turkey in a different way.

How to make the Handprint Turkey Thanksgiving Wreath
Cut the center from a paper plate and paint it brown.
Make 8 or more brown handprints or all different colors. My son made his on orange construction paper. Cut around each one when they have dried.
Cut a circle from brown construction paper to use for the turkey’s head. Add googly eyes, a beak, and a gobbler. Glue to the bottom of the paper plate.
Glue the handprints all around the back end of the plate. Stick in feathers before it dries.
Trace and cut 2 orange handprints (or make with paint when making the other ones). Glue them on to the bottom of the plate to make the feet.
