Turkey Hand Print Placemat

Every year we make a Thanksgiving turkey handprint project. In 2006 we made a Turkey Handprint Placemat. It’s perfect for decorating the Thanksgiving dinner table or a craft for the little ones before dinner.

Turkey Hand Print Placemat

We started with a large piece of paper for turkey hand print placemat. First, we glued on leaf shapes (trace a cookie cutter if you don’t have a die cutting machine). Then we made a handprint turkey and decorated the leaves with glitter.

I was able to get these placemats laminated at a teacher supply store inexpensively, but be aware that laminating large pieces can be expensive.  
I was behind someone at Staples that picked up a bunch of preschool things for her classroom walls and it was over $100! Yes, she was surprised. Always get a quote first.  

Eight placemats were about $25 at our local teaching supply store. You could also use contact paper but they wouldn’t be as smooth with glitter. The heavy-duty laminating covered the glitter really well.
