Make Turkey Placemats

Use your handprint to make turkey placemats for your Thanksgiving table.

What You Need

  • construction paper
  • contact paper
  • markers
  • tempera paint
  • paintbrush (optional)

What You Do

  • STEP 1: MAKE HANDPRINT

    Make sure your work area is well covered. Put a small amount of paint on a plate and spread it around. Dip your palm in and press it to a piece of construction paper. Or better yet, use a paintbrush to paint on your palms. Try brushing on different color combinations.

  • STEP 2: DRAW TURKEYS

    When your handprints are dry, use a marker to draw on the legs, eyes, and bills of your turkeys.

  • STEP 3: COVER PLACEMAT WITH CONTACT PAPER

    Cover both sides of the paper with clear contact paper.

    Now you are ready to use the placemat for Thanksgiving dinner. Make an entire set for your family!
