3. Collect the hands and ask an adult to help you staple them together. Staple the pinky of the first hand to the pinky of the second.

– Scissors

– Markers

– Glue

– Google eyes (Optional)


1. Print the printable hand outline onto card paper for the turkey’s feathers.

   – Choose colored or blank paper to color the feathers yourself!

2. Make the turkey’s body using brown card paper.

   – If you don’t have brown card paper, color regular card paper brown or glue colored paper to recycled cardboard.

3. Glue the turkey’s head to its body. Add eyes, a beak, and a gizzard using markers or cut-outs from card paper.

   – Glue the legs to the body so the feet rest on the table, helping the turkey stand.

5. Make your turkey presentable by adding feathers! Bend each hand at the bottom of the palm and glue them to the back of the turkey’s body. Ensure the turkey balances on its hands and feet.
