Turkey Cards

My little peanut is the only grandchild on both sides, so whenever I can send them something "handmade" I like to.  Family...this is your cue to stop reading:)

This weekend we made turkey cards.  We did something similar at our Mommy and Me class for Mother's Day so I just modified it slightly for the different holiday.

We started out with red, orange, yellow, brown and white construction paper...the little peanut picked out each color by herself!

On the red, orange and yellow paper, I traced out her hands and cut them out.  I needed a total of 6 hands (two in each color) per card.

Then I traced her feet on the brown paper and cut that out.

I took the white construction paper I had and folded it in half (so it turned into a card) and glued the hand prints down like this (thumbs out) to become the turkey's feathers.

Next the cut out foot print was glued on top of the feathers (toes down).  The last thing we did was cut out a triangle from the orange paper to use for the turkey's beak.

I put the little peanuts name and age down at the bottom.  I know all the grandparents are gonna LOVE this!  It helps to freeze time - her hands and feet won't grow on this turkey!!!



  1. Why do only Grandparents get homemade gifts?

  2. Aww! You know I'm a sucker for kiddo crafts like this...although I think Little Crafter's foot might be too big to fit on a card these days! :) Thanks for sharing such a cute project at Shine On Fridays! Have a great weekend!

  3. This is sooo stinkin adorable.. and of course the grandparents always eat these up! Such a great memento of your little one when they get bigger and the turkey design is so precious!
    Thanks so much for sharing with the Pink Hippo Party.. can't wait to see what you share next!
