Handprint Turkeys Paint child’s palm and thumb brown and each finger a different color. When dry, paint the tip of the index finger red and put on thumbprint for the turkey’s waddle. Use orange marker to make beak and feet and black marker for eyes. Add this poem beneath the turkey handprint: This isn’t just a turkey, As anyone can see. I made it with my little 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!
