We used them to...
... decorate our classroom turkey feathers! And then we used them to count by 5s.
|I have had this cute turkey since 1992.|
A parent painted it for me.
I just added the yellow bulletin board paper to the back and let the kids place their handprints on it.
I labeled each handprint with their names.
|We made two handprints. One here on the turkey and one on the project below.|
My students LOVE coming up to our classroom turkey, which hangs right at their level, and count the handprints by 5s. Only a few of them can do it, but it's catching on.
We also made...
|We made our handprint here first.Then, we walked to the turkey and placed our handprint there too.|
You can use any color combination. This is how we painted our little hands:
|They loved how the brush tickled their hands.It allowed us to talk about our sense of feeling once again.|
... the traditional turkey handprint. These will look great in their memory books.
|I take their photo and add it to the memory book.Use the sepia tone setting on your camera (or phone) to make the photo look old.|
