Thanksgiving is a great time to get the kids involved in crafts that are also keepsakes. After all, one of the things we are most thankful for is our friends and family. Hand and footprint crafts capture a moment in time, and remind us of how small we were, and how much we have grown. This footprint turkey wreath is an easy fall craft that your toddler or preschooler can make now, and that can serve as a decoration for years to come.
Here is what you need to make your own Thanksgiving Footprint Turkey Wreath:
- a paper plate
- brown construction paper
- scraps of yellow and orange construction paper
- squares or scraps of red, orange, yellow, and brown tissue paper
- a black marker
1. Cut the centre out of a paper plate (an adult's job). Spread glue onto the paper plate, and cover with squares of tissue paper:
3. Trace your foot onto brown construction paper. Cut out. Use your marker to add two eyes, and glue on a orange beak.
4. Cut two long strips of yellow construciton paper, and accordian fold each one. Glue to the bottom of the turkey's body to form its legs.
5. Glue the turkey's body to the bottom of your wreath, and hang your wreath on the door. Happy Thanksgiving!
