Potato Print Turkey Craft – Make and Takes

Potato Print Turkey Kids Craft

We are so close to Halloween that I have started to think about Thanksgiving! The kids and I like to start crafting early so we can change out our art wall when the next holiday starts. These fun and easy potato print turkeys we crafted are going up Sunday on the art wall. This was a great craft that all 3 of my kids could enjoy. We all enjoyed making this Thanksgiving craft together.

5. Leave the prints to dry.

6. Once dry I added red, green, yellow, blue, and orange paint to a plate.

7. I dipped the kids fingers in the paint and we added “feathers” to the body of the turkeys.

8. The kids glued on googly eyes.

9. I cut the corner off of a sheet of orange paper to make a beak.  The kids glued these on too.

10. I used my orange fine tip sharpie marker to draw on turkey legs.
