This is a great Thanksgiving craft to give the kids while they are waiting for Thanksgiving dessert to be served.
Have kids paint their hands brown on the palm, then red, yellow, and orange for the fingers (or you can use whatever paint combination you choose!). Press handprint onto the middle of the paper plate.
Cut out squares of construction paper in fall colours, and have kids glue them around the outside to create a 'wreath' effect around the turkey.
Once paint is dry, use a marker to add details to the turkey (face, legs).
