With school out for a few days and the adults busy getting Thanksgiving dinner together, boredom is bound to fall upon the kids. With some supplies and a little bit of imagination, that can be easily remedied, though.
Crayons, markers or colored pencils
Only use scissors under adult supervision
Step 1: Firmly place your hand on a white piece of construction paper – make sure to place your hand palm down and spread your fingers apart. Using a black marker, trace your hand – starting at your wrist and ending on the other side of your wrist.
Step 2: Once you have traced your hand, draw a line from one end to the other to finish the body of the turkey. Also, draw a line at the end of each finger to create your turkey’s feathers.
Step 3: Don’t forget to give your turkey a face! On the thumb, draw an eye, and a beak! Now that your turkey has a face, you can give it a pair of legs!
Step 4: Before moving on to the fun part, on each finger, write one thing you are thankful for. It can be anything, your parents, your pets, the house you live in. Let the Thanksgiving spirit flow and write what you’re thankful for.
Step 5: We have finally reached the fun part! It’s time to color your turkey! Use your imagination for this part and have fun, coloring in the turkey and feathers.
