Fingerprint Turkey Art

Another fun idea from the past. I think my toddler could do it with help! We’ll have to try it!

6-year-old’s on left; 3-year-old’s on right

I cut circles out of brown paper. I told my kids to glue them on near the bottom of the paper and showed them the basic concept. I then pulled out my paint pallettes, and put one paint color in each space. They then used one finger per color to make the feathers. I told them to make the feathers go in a “V” (like my son’s) and to do fingerprints instead of smudges. My 3-year-old started right, then did her own version. I love their interpretations of things! They then added feet, beak, and gobble with their fingers. We glued on googly eyes to complete our pictures. Cute!

And don’t forget about pumpkin pie playdough tomorrow while dinner’s being prepped! Have a good Thanksgiving!
