Family Hand Turkey

According to my husband, the hand turkey is a staple of any good Thanksgiving.  This year I was excited to find a new idea on Pinterest that made our daughter’s annual hand turkey extra special: the family hand turkey!

Start by tracing your child’s or children’s hands.  Then trace the parents’ hands.  Cut each person’s traced hand out of a different color of construction paper.  Arrange the hand shapes in order from smallest to largest and glue them on top of one another so that each layer peeks out from behind the one in front.  Add a turkey body and face.  The end result is the the sweetest hand turkey ever.  I love it so much because it highlights the most important part of Thanksgiving for me – being together and giving thanks for my precious family.
