|A cute turkey made from hands and feet
First, trace the foot of the child with their shoe on. Do this on a dark brown piece of construction paper. (Note: if the child is wiggly, then just trace the shoe by itself)
Next, trace your child's hand twice on a piece of construction paper.
|My middle child was 2 1/2 here, now she's 6.. where has the time gone?
Now to build your turkey. Take the two foot pieces and place them upside down heals together, and slightly offset. (For play by play directions click here). Next glue all the hand "feathers" spread out on on the back of the bird in a fan-like fashion. We used the two light tan hands as feathers on the front and attached them that way, the rest were glued on the back. All that's left after that is a few googly eyes and some small pieces to make a wattle, beak, and feet.
