Thanksgiving Turkeys

Here's a fun idea for leaf prints and handprint turkeys. Just to let you know how long ago I did this project, the largest handprint goes with the big guy up there on the right in the banner. The smallest handprint belongs to the tall kid with the glasses! Colin was only two when we made his little turkey; now he's a big cheese 15-year-old!











We made the Indian corn with fingerprints. If I could do the project over again, I would embroider the words instead of using fabric crayons. Or better yet, use the crayons and let the kids write the words. Maybe, let them letter it in pencil, and then Mom could go over it in crayon or embroidery. I would have loved to preserve their handwriting as well as their little handprints. Trust me, it goes by all too quickly!
