Thanksgiving is a holiday we decorate for, but I will admit it is not done on the same level as Halloween or Christmas. It is usually a little more simple, a few pumpkins, some leaf crafts, and of course some turkey hand prints. I rounded up 5 of our family favorite Thanksgiving handprint crafts. They are really all easy for kids (& adults) of all ages to do. They make great decorations and great gifts for this upcoming holiday season.
This is a great idea for the whole family and a great way to reuse Halloween pumpkins! Easily add the handprints with paint from oldest to youngest, and in complementing colors. You can find the full tutorial over at The NY Melrose Family.
Indulgy has this cute idea with a more traditional handprint turkey. I love using canvas and always have plenty on hand. We have a few of these but used red, yellow, and orange as the feathers.
My youngest son loves to pick up acorns and pine-cones this time of year so I thought of him doing the Handprint Acorns immediately. I originally found this one on Pinterest and Crafty Morning.
The Thankful Tree is especially nice for larger families….with a lot more hands! We made one of these last year and had all the kids add fingerprints, as well as the extended family. With having a total of 10 kids (5 of my own and 5 bonus), this is a great project to get them all involved. Found over on Apartment Therapy.
Handprint turkey plates or chargers are great keepsakes. Each of the kids has one that we made earlier this month and I love how they came out. You can use just about any kind of plate or any color charger. The kids made one for their grandma too, which they will be delivering cookies on this month.
