Hand and Foot Turkey!

We Canadians just had thanksgiving. I figure though since most of my readers are American I would share our turkey craft with you and you can use it in November if you so desire.

So on Thursday Hudson and I made an adorable little turkey friend.

First we painted Hudson's foot with brown tempura paint.  

Then he stamped it onto a peice of green cardstock (you can use any color really this is just what i had handy).

Next we used red, yellow, green and orange paint and made a line of overlapping hand prints on a yellow piece of card stock.

I wiped his hands with wet wipes between color changes.

I cut out the foot and hands.  The foot became the turkey's body and the hands became the tail.

Hudson glued some googly eyes a beak and the waddle (is that what you call the hangy red thing?) on to the heel of the foot. ( I just cut the beak and red hangy thing out of scrap paper.

Then we attached the body to the tail with an accordion folded piece of paper because nobody likes a flat turkey:)

Voila!  Gobble Gobble!

That is SO cute!! If Maddie would allow ANY paint on her hands, I would totally be trying this out. It turned out GREAT!

Happy Thanksgiving (a little late for you and a little early for me! Ha!)

That is way too cute. What a great idea! Maybe Selena will accept paint on her hands by Thanksgiving here, so we can try something like this!

Happy Thanksgiving! It's a very cute turkey. I might try something like this with tracing instead of handpainting. Anna is OK with painting her body parts, but I am not. LOL.
