Thanks for sharing About.com with others!

Walk around my house and you'll think you're in a handprint art museum. I love crafts that capture those little hands and toes forever.

Turkey Handprint
Photo Apryl Duncan

Last year, I decided we need to make turkeys out of righty and lefty. With some brown paint and a toddler more than willing to get his hands dirty, we had instant turkeys on the page. We gave the turkeys grass, clouds and a sun. That moment instantly started a family tradition.

We've already completed our turkey handprint for this year. My, how those hands have grown!

Now I want to share this fun project with you and your family. I've also added a second version so your turkey hands can have feathers if you want. They are both adorable so you can't go wrong with either choice.

I would love to see how your version of the turkey handprint turned out. Send me a picture!

This is such a cute post. As an aspiring “house-mom” I definitely can appreciate you sharing a family tradition. As a Manhattan housewife I see the disappearance of family traditions everywhere. It’s refreshing to read a post like this.

Apryl, thank you so much for this! I was looking for a simple but fun Thanksgiving project to do with my 2 and 6 year old sons and this looks perfect.
