Leafy Turkey

Use your own hand and leaves from your backyard to make this festive Thanksgiving craft.

What You Need

  • glue
  • colorful leaves (If your leaves are too curly or bumpy to work with, put them under a heavy book to flatten them.)
  • markers
  • paper

What You Do

  1. Trace your hand onto a sheet of paper.
  2. Draw Turkey
    1. Draw an eye and a beak where the thumb is.
    2. Draw legs where the heel of the hand is.
  3. Glue on Leaves
    1. Give the turkey a colorful tail by gluing long, thin leaves to where the fingers are.
    2. Glue on a short, round leaf to the middle of the hand for the turkey’s wing. Let the glue dry before you hang it up or share it with a friend.
