Armed with colorful construction paper, a pencil, some glue, and a pack of googly eyes, you and your kids can make wonderful handprint turkeys for their playroom. Ask each kid to trace their hands onto a sheet of construction paper, then help them to cut out the handprint. The handprint fingers serve as the tail feathers. Afterwards, make the body, feet, and the beak, then glue them all together. Hang it up on the wall of your kids’ playroom, or you can frame it and place it on their desks for a colorful display.
