Handprint Candy Corn Turkey Craft for Kids
- Crayons, colored pencils or markers
- Candy corn
Here’s a fun craft that the older kids can help the younger ones with. It’s like a traditional handprint turkey art, but glue on candy corns to make the colorful feathers.
Have your child trace their hand to create the turkey outline.
Draw a line where the fingers meet the hand to separate them and create a clear place for your child to color.
Have your child color in the main part of the hand however they want.
If you want to get really creative, hand over the sequins, gems or whatever craft supplies you have on hand for them to fill in the hand.
Let your child fill in the fingers using candy corn to form the turkey feathers.
