You will need:
Paint (I used a tan)
Brown, Red, Yellow and Orange fabric
Yellow and Red fun foam scraps or use can use fabric
Paper for tracing
First of all trace your child's hand and foot. I think this project would be really fun for those with multiple children to make one turkey with all sorts of sizes of feathers. After you have your pattern, pin the hand onto your fabric. Pin EVERY finger. Trust me, it is much easier. Then cut out the hands. I cut two yellow, two red and one orange. Cut one foot piece in brown.
Add a final coat of Mod Podge to the canvas and allow to dry.
Add your google eyes, beak (a triangle of yellow fun foam) and the wattle (basically a teardrop shape of red foam) with glue.
I think it would be fun to pain the background as a Thanksgiving scene.
You could add things you are grateful for it the hands if you would like.
