Trace your child’s feet (while she’s wearing shoes)onto brown or black construction paper and cut them out. Trace your child’s hands on various other colors of construction paper. The “feet” will become the turkey’s body and the handprints his tail feathers. Cut out all the pieces you just traced. Use the image above as a guide on how to assemble your turkey. Cut eyes, a beak and a waddle out of remnants of construction paper and glue them on your turkey.
