Hand Turkey PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Make animals out of paper.

What You Need:



• Paper
• A jumbo pencil, jumbo crayons, or washable markers

What To Do:


1. Trace the outline of your child’s hand on a sheet of paper.
2. Ask him to help you count how many fingers he has.
3. Ask him to draw a face and a beak on the thumb; this will be the head of the turkey.
4. Let him color in the other four fingers; they will be the turkey’s feathers.
5. Help him draw two bird-like feet at the bottom of the handprint.
6. Ask him to tell you about his turkey.
7. Proudly display his turkey on the refrigerator!

Variation:
After you trace his hand on the paper, trace yours too. Have him color in the face, beak, and feathers. Talk about which turkey is bigger and which is smaller. Talk about how his hand is similar to and different from yours.
