This quick and easy art activity comes with a super cute poem sure to make any parent thankful. Simply provide a small piece of brown construction paper for each child. (Half a regular sheet of construction paper should be enough). It’s often tricky for kindergarten children to trace their own hands, so it can help to have a partner to work with. Of course, pretty much anything is more fun with feathers to decorate it. Add a face and legs/feet with crayons. You could also paint the children’s hands and have them press them onto paper, let them dry and then cut them out.
Here they’re shown decorating a November calendar, but they’d also make a lovely piece of artwork on their own, or perhaps a Thanksgiving card to go home to families.
The Turkey Hand Print Poem reads:
This isn’t just a turkey as you can plainly see.
I made it with my 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!
