Hand Print Turkey Keepsakes

Thanksgiving Handprint Turkey Keepsake Craft
Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without a hand print turkey! In effort to do something different this year besides paint and paper, I came up with these Hand Print Turkey Keepsakes. Burlap is so fun to use with kids crafts! I had all of these materials on hand:  burlap, cardboard, paint, dyed noodles, paint, raffia and construction paper.  These are the two that are finished – 6 more to go – but I prepped the others for the older kids to thread their own noodles on after nap time. Handprint turkeys are a true Thanksgiving tradition and sure to be treasured for many years. Those cute little fingers painted into feathers..adorable!
