Handprint Turkey Craft

What better's than recycling stuff at home for kids craft? Cardboard tubes have been our favorite craft materials. We have a lot of easy craft ideas using cardboard. And, when you add your kid's handprint to the craft, it becomes a lovely keepsake.

This handprint turkey is an easy Thanksgiving craft for preschool and kindergarten kids. You can also use your family handprints for the turkey's feather like we did for our Handprint Peacock Craft.
