Thankful Tree with Handprint Leaves & Acorns
Little handprints make the cutest leaves and acorns for your gratitude tree centerpiece. After the paint dries, add stems and veins to the "leaves" and little hats with cross hatching details to the acorns. Hot glue some twine to the back and make sure to add a name and what that person is thankful for this year.
Turkey Hat with Handprint Feathers
There is something about a funny hat that makes a child want to pose for a photo! Add the element of their own traced hands for the feathers and it's even more fun. Use colored paper to cut out all the elements or print and color this turkey hat page to simplify the process. Either way, don't forget to trace and cut out 3 colorful handprints to use as feathers.
Fingerprint Pumpkin Garland
These pumpkins are inspired by the dotted pumpkin paintings by famous artist, Yayoi Kusama, and the dots are fingerprints! Each pumpkin needs 3 narrow strips of paper and a small piece of pipe cleaner for the stem. Attach it all with a stapler, and string it on twine for a garland. Kids will love helping decorate the space for Thanksgiving. If finger painting isn't your thing, feel free to create designs with markers instead.
