Family of Turkeys

What You’ll Need
White paper
Paint (brown, red, orange, yellow)
Paint brushes
Every member of the family

What You’ll Do

  1. Set a large piece of white paper out on the table horizontally. The back side of wrapping paper would be great for this as you can get a good straight piece of paper out of it.
  2. With Daddy, paint the palm of his left hand brown and the fingers alternating with orange, yellow and red.
  3. Make him stamp that hand on the paper.
  4. Repeat step 2 with Mommy and make her stamp that hand on the paper right next to Daddy forming a line.
  5. With your first born, repeat step 2 and stamp their hand right next to Mommy’s right in line.
  6. Repeat step 2 for all remaining members of the family in order of birth oldest to youngest.
  7. Once everyone has stamped their turkey hand, set aside to dry.
  8. Once dry, let the member of the family add details to the turkey with the markers. Have them write their name right under the turkey.
  9. Frame for all to see.
