Preparing Your Child for Preschool: Preschool Thanksgiving Craft Project

This is a fun preschool craft project that we just did the other day. It was so much fun. Lol, you can tell from the pictures that we are far from artists, but it was still a fun preschool craft project. Be sure to check below for more pictures.

What You Will Need:

Construction Paper
Paper Bags (Optional – Can Also Use Paper)
Glue Stick

What You Will Want to Do

1 – Cut Your Paper Bag

If you are using the lunch sized paper bags or even the full sized paper bags, you will want to cut a square out, which will be large enough for your hand print.

You can skip this step if you are using traditional paper.

2 – Trace Your Child’s Handprint

3 – Cut Out the Handprint

This step is optional, but since my daughter is 3, I decided to precut her handprint. I was worried that when she colored the lines would be mixed up and I wouldn’t accurately be able to cut out her print.

4 – Color The Turkey Print

We used markers, but crayons can also be used. We also put a scrap piece of paper under the handprint cut out. This is a good idea if your toddler or preschooler is likely to color outside of the lines, as you don’t want to have crayon or marker on your table.

5 – Glue the Colored Turkey Print on a Piece of Construction Paper

6 – Sign It and Possibly Frame It
