Handprint Turkey with a Twist

Today we made a classic hand print turkey, but with a twist. My kids love to be in the kitchen with me. I think that is a wonderful way for them to learn. I learned how to cook by watching my mom and I would love to pass that on to my kids. Sooo, I thought I would see how well they are paying attention. I asked them this question:

How do you cook a turkey?

Here are their responses:

I attached their recipes to the bottom of the hand print turkeys. I hand wrote the responses, but they would look a lot better typed and printed out. (If my printer was not broken.)
Here are the finished projects. It was a lot of fun hearing what they were thinking and they were super excited to tell me how to do it!


  1. Oh my gosh!! I love this. What great memories you'll have looking back at this in years to come.

  2. How sweet. I love hand turkeys. Last year, I had my kids and husband trace their hands. Then the kids and I colored the hands. Then I connected them all and I had it draped over the kitchen entrance near the ceiling. The kids were so proud, except the baby, she was irritated I was using her hand.

    Congrats on your award, how special, both of your blogs were awarded.

    Take Care.

  3. That's adorable! Such a sweet memory to be able to look back on one day...thanks for sharing!

  4. My kids are all grown up now. But I still remember the hand printing which served as borders in the kids rooms when they were small. But we moved out and all that's left are sweet memories.

  5. Great idea...I'm gonna have to remember this when she's a little older.

    Thanks for stopping by today...

  6. Love this! My twins did it in kindergarten and I think I'll do it again this year :)

  7. I love it! Be sure to pass it on to them for their first Thanksgiving in their own home! :)

  8. I do this in my classroom and then laminate it so parents can use it as a placemat for years to come. I ask my children what they will be having on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner and who will be cooking. The answers are hilarious!


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
