Making Turkey Hand-Print Cards

SO MUCH FUN!!!  Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and what great treat these hand-print turkey cards are to give to your closest friends and family.  We purchased some awesome finger-painting supplies for this craft:

(No chemical dyes, certified non-toxic, and all-natural; not to mention that the packaging is made of 80% recycled materials!)

(It is perfect!  Just cut to size and no need to worry about the paint bleeding through it.)

HOW TO:  Just paint the palm and thumb the same color for the turkey's body, and then paint the other fingers different colors for the feathers.  Later "after finger paints have dried" you can go through with regular acrylic paint to make turkey's wattle, eye, beak, legs and feet. ... After all paint has dried, you may wish to use some crafting glue "that doesn't wrinkle" to attach the turkey paper to some decorative card stock.  Be sure to later personalize these cards by writing "Thanksgiving, the year, the child's name, and age. :-)
