Supplies You’ll Need to Make Your Turkey Handprint
- Cardstock – light brown, orange and red (you can also use construction paper)
- Tacky glue (or hot glue with adult assistance)
Be sure to watch the video below on making this handprint turkey (and to see the “trick” to get the turkey head to look just right).

Steps to Make your Turkey Handprint
1. First fold over your brown cardstock in half.
Trace your hand so that the pinky finger is lined up with the folded part and the thumb is pulled down as far as it can go. This will make the turkey “head” look like a turkey. Skip down to the bottom of our post to see the video tutorial!
2. Cut out your handprint.
Trim a bit from the bottom if needed.
3. Now cut out your feet and beak as shown and glue to your handprint.
These can be glued on with a glue stick.
4. Now add your googly eye and red wattle.
5. Now you can add your feathers!
We like making the pattern red, yellow, orange, red. But you can also add in blue or green feathers too. We like using this tacky glue for gluing on feathers as they tend to be a bit harder to glue on.
Now add your message inside your card! We love the turkey poem we created and this would be adorable inside your card along with “Happy Thanksgiving”.
