Turkey Handprint Hunt Game
Teach your toddler about hands with this easy turkey handprint hunt game!
There are some fun Thanksgiving turkey hunt games going around and that sounds like a lot of fun. My daughter, Coral was 2 years old when we made those, she was learning about body parts. She was excited when she found out that she could make turkeys with her handprints.
- Color papers
- Cardstock paper
- Apply paints on your child’s hands with a foam paintbrush and press the hand onto a piece of construction paper in colors of your child’s choice. Do as many handprints as you’d like. We did 11 handprints.
- Let the paint dry.
- Cut around the hands and cut the cardstock papers in any size to fit the hands.
- OPTIONAL: Have your kid color the cardstock papers and write on the top what they are THANKFUL for.
- Glue the handprints onto the cardstock papers.
- Leave them out to dry.
- Once they’re dry, hide the handprints around the house.
- Have your child hunt for their turkey handprints!
You could add faces/legs to the handprints so they’d look more like turkeys. GOBBLE GOBBLE!
(Excuse my messy handwriting.)
We wrote that we are thankful for food, love, family, and you!
I think my favorite handprints have to be the ones that say Thankful for Family & Happy Turkey Day!
You can either do it indoors or outdoors. Since I live in Florida, we do it outside in the backyard. I hide the cards around the backyard and have Coral hunt for her handprints. It is a fun Thanksgiving turkey handprint hunt game!
**Another idea of what to do with these cards: You could use a hole puncher and punch a hole in the top of all cards. Put a string through those and display as a Thankful garland! I LOVE doing garlands! I made a paper bat garland for Halloween and a marbled salt dough ball garland for Coral’s bedroom.
