OK I am so excited for Christmas to come and to start all of the projects with Emma and almost forgot about Thanksgiving/Turkey crafts so here we go :)
NOTE: Child may squirm/giggle because it tickles hahaha
Materials I used:
Glue (like Elmer's or a glue stick)
Beige acrylic paint (or brown...)
festive construction paper
white poster board (holds up better with the footprint than construction paper)
orange felt (cut into a triangle for the beak)
optional: bow...Emma said the turkey was a princess so it needed a bow
Not too much a tutorial...kind of self explanatory...
paint the bottom of the foot...stamp the foot on the white (or whatever color)...make sure to press all of the toes down haha
Cut out your foot as close as you can or how you want
Next...get your festive construction paper. I used, beige, brown, orange and red. Cut them int "feather" shapes"...place them how you would like them behind your foot.
I taped them together because every time I do stuff like this, I always end up gluing too quickly and then they aren't where I wanted them haha so I tape them before I glue haha...like this:
and yes I name and date things like this :)
Take your glue (I just used regular glue or a glue stick would work too) and glue to your paper :)
Next, flip it over...glue your beak first...this way you know where you want your eyes...and then I glued the red turkey throat thingy hahaha...next OH I used glue dots for the eyes...just made me feel better that they would stay put
OK so when I was done...it didn't look like enough feather so I made bigger one's...I like how it turned out :)
The Emma's Princess Turkey Footprint hahaha
you could totally go nuts and and use felt too! that would be fun!!
