Since our ghost footprint plaque was so much fun to make but had to be packed up until next fall, my son and I got together with some friends, and pulled out the paints again to make a new plaque to hang in it’s place. Ready to give the house a festive look for Thanksgiving is our Handprint Turkey:
Isn’t he adorable? My favorite part is how excited my son gets about it. If you ask him where his turkey handprint is, he’ll point directly at it and babble excitedly. Sometimes a few claps are thrown in too. 🙂 Adorable.
On the back, is a cute little poem we found on the internet (not exactly sure where credit is due since I found it in multiple searches):
We altered it slightly (changing “It comes with” to “It’s made with”), printed it onto cardstock, handwrote each boy’s name, date & age and adhered using mod podge.
Supplies: wooden plaque (6-3/4″ diameter); acrylic paints; paint brushes; coordinating ribbon; staple gun; white cardstock; Mod Podge.
