Thanksgiving Craft: Fingerprint Turkey Cards

Fingerprint Turkey Cards

With Thanksgiving coming sooner than I’m ready to admit, I’ve been reflecting on what I’m thankful for and looking for ways to help my son do the same.  Four year olds are all kinds of selfish, so I’ll seize any opportunity to get him thinking about others.  With that in mind, we set out to make some cards to send to friends and family to let them know we are grateful to have them in our lives.  I found the inspiration for these fingerprint turkey cards in Family Fun magazine, where they were imagined as place cards.  Whether you make them as place cards, greeting cards or just make them for the fun of it, they are a cute way to get ready for turkey day.

Supplies for Fingerprint Turkey CardsSend a note of thanks with these fingerprint turkey cards.  Fun craft project for preschoolers. You’ll need:
Blank Greeting Cards or Cardstock
Non-Toxic Ink Pads in your choice of colors
Markers/Paint Markers for Decorating

I happened to find all the colors I wanted in one huge ink pad at JoAnn that was perfect for this project.

We made two styles of turkey, one facing front, one facing to the side. I envisioned taking step-by-step photos while Jake and I made cards. Then I was faced with the harsh reality that ink pads, little fingers and expensive cameras probably aren’t an ideal combination. So I waited until naptime to do a set on my own.

For the front facing turkey, start by making a row of feathers with your index finger.

Fingerprint Turkey Cards - Front Step 2Add more rows of feathers in colors of your choice.

Fingerprint Turkey Cards - Front Step3Make the body with a thumbprint.

Fingerprint Turkey Cards - Front FacingAdd eyes, beak and feet.  We used paint markers for the eyes and beak – markers won’t show up over the ink.

(If you have any googly eyes around, they’d be a cute touch.)

Now, how about those side facing turkeys:

Fingerprint Turkey - Side Step 1Make the body with a sideways thumbprint and use your index finger for the head.

Fingerprint Turkey Cards - Side Step 2Add rows of index print feathers.

Fingerprint Turkeys - Side Step 3Add eye, beak, wattle and feet.


Fingerprint Turkey CardsKinda cute, don’t you think?

Feel free to doodle some more.  Sunshine and an airplane are good choices.

Fingerprint Thanksgiving CardI think Daddy will like it.

An afternoon of crafting, that’s something else to be thankful for.

    I do not leave a response, but I browsed a few
    comments on Thanksgiving Craft: Fingerprint Turkey Cards | The Charmed Mom.

    I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be only me
    or does it look like like some of the remarks look like they are
    left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to keep
    up with you. Could you make a list of every one of all
    your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    With these, the easier choice becomes to reduce
    unwanted weight and as such, get the chance to locate section of
    the shaft that’s hidden by the fat pad. But as they are available on the web sometimes
    without even prescription, you can find them. Make sure that you
    simply are buying hoodia gordonii, not other hoodia species. recently

  24. The easiest way of keeping one’s body fit
    and fine would be to keep to the fitness rules that help you take care of
    your physique in right way. It is basically a celebrity diet or crash diet,
    involves intake of fruit juices, and water only.
    These exercises include biking, swimming, jogging (or running), and
    in many cases rope jumping.
