Paper Plate Turkey Hand Craft for Toddlers
Instructions for paper plate turkey:
Step 1: Paint the back side of the plate brown.
Step 2: While the paint dries, trace your hands onto construction paper 3-4 times.
We used orange, red, and green, but feel free to use any colors you would like.
Step 3: Carefully cut out each hand print.
Step 4: Once the paint is dry, glue the hands onto the back side edges of the plate.
Step 5: Glue on the eyes or buttons. Cut out a small triangle shape for the beak and glue into place.
