If you’re looking for an easy Thanksgiving craft to do, look no further.
Mila had a blast making these turkey day cards for family and one to keep. Most of the supplies I had on hand, minus the feathers and small canvas. I got both at the local dollar store.
- Brown or copper paint
- Red paint
- Yellow paint
- Orange paint
- Black marker
- Computer paper
- Scrapbook paper
All you need to do is get your computer paper or canvas ready, paint your child’s hand like a turkey, and place it on the paper or canvas. It’s really as simple as that.
When you put paint in their hand, really put a lot on there or it’ll dry before you get everything painted. I painted the brown last and it seemed to help. With the one paint application, I was able to get four turkeys. One on canvas and the other three on paper.
After the turkeys dried a little, I glued on the feather and added the turkeys face and legs.
To make the three into a card, I taped them on scrapbook paper and wrote a little message on the back. Then it was done.
You can personalize these however you’d like or even add them to tea towels or plates with the right kind of plate. For us, it was easier to do this and they turned out adorable.
We all know this year is not a normal one, but it’s still nice to still make memories and send out cards to the ones we love.
If you give this Turkey Day craft a try, post in the comments so we can see. Lastly, Happy Thanksgiving!
I love this craft idea. It is so easy, and I am sure my kids will enjoy making this.

Thank you so much. It was a lot of fun to do with her.
Nice idea! We haven’t tried making a
Turkey Day craft so this is going to be exciting. Thank you for sharing this simple yet fun activity for the kids.
This is such a cute idea for a Thanksgiving craft. I’ll have to try this with my littles.
My little one would absolutely love doing this craft for Thanksgiving. He loves painting with his hands and feet so this is right up his alley.
Handprint crafts are one of my favorite memories from when my kiddos were toddlers! So cute.
