We are making this Hand Print Turkey Napkin Ring for each family member! The kiddos will be so happy to see it on the table Thanksgiving Day!
I can’t believe that October is almost over and it’s time to start thinking turkey. It’s amazing (and a little frightening) how time has flown.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It really helps me remember all the thankfuls from the year. It reminds me to slow down and enjoy my favorite people.
I really want to create awesome memories with my kiddos through activities that bring us closer. And I want to involve my kids as much as possible in the Thanksgiving Day preparation.
We are kicking off the fun with these Hand Print Turkey Napkin Rings. I thought the kiddos would get a kick out of their crafts being on the table during dinner.
It really didn’t take much. I love when I don’t have to go to the store to buy things for a craft!
I hope you have fun making this with your kiddos too!
Hand Print Turkey Napkin Ring – Materials
- Cardstock (brown, red, yellow and orange)
- Black Marker
- Glue Stick
Hand Print Turkey Napkin Ring – Instructions
Step One. Trace your kiddo’s hand on the yellow cardstock with pencil.
Step Two. Stack the red, orange and yellow cardstock. Cut the tracing out. You have a hand tracing in each color. These will be the turkey’s feathers.
Step Three. Cut a strip of brown paper (about 1.5 – 2 inches thick and 8.5 inches long). Tape the ends together to make a ring.
Step Four. Roll tape to make double-sided tape (3 pieces). Put one piece on each hand print. Tape the hand prints to the back of the ring.
Step Five. Cut a corner off the orange paper to make a triangle. Glue it onto the front of the ring.
Step Six. Draw two dots for the eyes using the black marker. You have a Hand Print Turkey Napkin Ring for the table.
Repeat the steps for as many napkin rings you need. You can also use it as a standing decoration. We have ours on our mantel right now. And it’s really cute!
Here it is with a accordion-folded napkin in it:
I hope you have some turkey fun!
