And just like THAT Halloween is over! We are moving onto the next holiday – Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be happier. I started WAY TOO EARLY this year with Halloween and had all my decorations out before Fall even started. Anxious much?? LOL!

Thanksgiving is such a great holiday because it’s all about food, family and making memories. Here’s a craft from Kaboose to get you started.

Making Your Hands-and-Feet Turkey

Step 1 – Trace the child’s hands and feet

1. Trace two feet (with shoes on) on brown construction paper.
2. Trace two hands on tan construction paper.
3. Trace two hands on red construction paper.
4. Trace two hands on orange construction paper.
5. Trace one hand on yellow construction paper.

Step 2 – Cut out all the pieces

Cut out all the hands and feet tracings.

Step 3 – Make the Body

Put the two feet tracings together to make the turkey body and head, placing the heels together one on top of another, and spreading the bottoms apart as in the illustration. Glue.

Cut two feet out of the orange scraps, then cut a diamond shape for the beak. Draw the eyes on white paper and cut them out, or use wiggle eyes. Make the wattle out of red construction paper. Glue each piece onto the body as shown.

Step 4 – Attach the tail

Glue the red, orange, and yellow construction paper hands behind the brown body to make the tail.

Step 5 – Wings

Position the two tan hands on either side of the body to make the turkey’s wings and glue them in place.
