Thanksgiving Handprint Craft


Today we did a Thanksgiving craft. I traced each of the kid's hands onto construction paper. Before we began the craft, I talked to the kids about Thanksgiving and being thankful for the things we have in our life. So with that information in their heads, I then asked each child what they were thankful for and wrote it on each finger of the hand cut out. Then I had them glue their hands to the paper plates. I then took marker and wrote their name and age on the middle of the hand. Add the eye and gobbler part of the turkey. Is that what that thing is called? I don't know, but that is what I choose to call it.

I will probably go ahead and add some string to the top of the plate, so when they take it home to their parents, it can be hung up.

That's it! Super easy and great way to get the kids talking and thinking about Thanksgiving and being thankful!
