HANDPRINT TURKEY WITH TEXTURE   
Written by: Andrea Mulder-Slater [Andrea is one of the creators of KinderArt.com]

Grade: PreK-5

Age: 2-11

Activity Summary:

Students can make a handprint turkey using seeds, beans and grains.

What You Need:

  • paper (heavy weight will work the best - poster paper, watercolor paper, etc.)
  • glue
  • pencil
  • seeds, beans and/or grains (we used millet, flax seeds, red lentils, split peas and oatmeal)
  • construction paper (optional)
  • googly eyes (optional)

What You Do:

  1. Gather some dried seeds, beans, etc.
  2. Child traces hand on a piece of paper, making sure the thumb is sticking out a bit (it will become the turkey's head). You can do it too!
  3. Squeeze glue onto the tracing. Work on one finger at a time.
  4. Drop seeds/beans/grains onto the glue.
  5. Fill in the palm of the hand with seeds and beans or torn construction paper.
  6. Add a googly eye and some seeds (or paper) to create the turkey's face and beak.
  7. Let dry and admire your work!
