Thanksgiving is all about saying thank you and I love to make homemade cards with my children. This card takes minute to make but is so personal and incorporates the ever popular handprint turkey!
Start by folding the paper in two.
Trace your child’s hand with the pinky finger along the fold.
Add glue and the eye.
Cut out leaving the fold untouched.
Add a greeting inside and don’t forget to sign it!
This simple craft was just as engaging to my 3 year old as any elaborate one, maybe even more so. Kids don’t need things to look perfect they just want to create. Adding some thankfulness to their creativity makes for the perfect easy craft. Check out another equally fun Thanksgiving card made with Melissa & Doug Alphabet Stamps!
