We are headed up north to visit my grandma. As a thank you for her hospitality, I wanted to give her something. She loves homemade items and I thought Troy would love giving her something he made, so we came up with this handmade Thanksgiving gift. First, we painted some sheets of card stock. It was fun for him since he could be messy and it didn’t matter. Then we traced my kiddos’ hands.
Then I cut out their hands and added eyes, beak and turkey gobbler. Next, I typed out this poem and added the little “turkeys” to the bottom. Here’s how it turned out…
