We made two different turkey print crafts this week. I am in love with both of them, and they now hang proudly from our mantle.
The top one used both Kingston's hand and footprint! I love the look of the mixed mediums. I printed Kingston foot while he was sitting in his high chair. Generally I just stamp his foot while I'm holding him in my arms, but wanted to try and get a really clear print. We used a reddish brown Studio G inkpad for all of our turkey prints. After printing his foot, I traced his hand on a piece of white printer paper and get it out as a template. Then I cut out his footprint, and traced and cut out five handprints using orange and red cardstock. I arranged everything and glued it down. Then added the finishing touches in the form of googly eyes and a small orange beak.
The last print craft we did is the most quintessential print craft ever! I don't think anybody has gone through their entire childhood without making a handprint turkey. This is serious business! Last year, this was Kingston's very FIRST print craft! Imagine? Unfortunately, I gave them away to family members as gifts and don't have any of those tiny 2 month old handprints for myself, but this year Kingston I made one for each of his special family members including Mama and Dada!
I love the color of the turkeys and how natural they look! Last year we did the rainbow ones. These ones are much more realistic.
Do you do turkey print crafts with your kids? I would love to hear all about your experience in the comments!
