Add Feathers

Squirt a little of each paint color onto a disposable paper plate or piece of aluminum foil. Let kids dip their fingers into the craft paint, one color at a time, then press the paint onto the white card stock to create the turkey's tail feathers (Images 1-3).

Add Body, Beak and Eyes

Help the child dip their thumb into the light tan paint then press it into the center of the fingerprints to create the turkey's body (Image 1). Once paint has fully dried, add the turkey's eyes and beak with permanent markers (Image 2).
