Handprint Turkeys

We played in paint today! And it was OH SO FUN! Jaxon LOVES to paint. It usually gets everywhere…but it’s so much fun that I don’t mind the mess!
We painted handprint turkeys and they are precious! LOVE THEM!
Jaxon Thanksgiving 2010-final
To make your own you will need:
♥Various paint colors {I used brown, orange, red, blue & green}
♥Paint brushes
I used separate brushes to paint Jaxon’s palm brown and then a different color on each finger. ♦Keeping a toddler still with paint on his hands is CARAZZY fun!♦
I then just pressed his hand flat on the paper twice!
After the paint dried I went back and drew eyes, a beak and feet with a Sharpie!
I used my scanner to scan his MASTERPIECE to my computer and then added text to it using my photo editing program.
I love this! I’ll be printing & handing them out at Thanksgiving dinner to grandparents & loved ones.
I think this would be a great project to do every Thanksgiving and show how Jaxon’s hands grow every year! Yay!☺
Hope you enjoy & have a SUPER day!

How cute!! I'll have to try that out with my niece. It'll be a fun activity for Thanksgiving.

Thanks for wonderful inspiration!
My rascals really enjoyed "painting" - not turkeys, but chickens (for Easter):
