Free Turkey Handprint Poem

It is not Thanksgiving in kindergarten without a cute little handprint turkey poem.   And so here is a Free Turkey Handprint Poem Printable and some tips and tricks from someone how has done it for many years in kindergarten.

This resource works well with these Simply Kinder resources

To make this projects:

  • Print the printable on card stock (download below).
  • Have your students write their names on it first.  This will help you to know who’s hand is who’s.
  • Have paint on a plate and each color a different paint brush.
  • Have lots of paper towels handy – wet and dry.
  • Paint the hand one time, then glop it on again quickly right before you put it on the paper.
  • Have the kids not extend their thumb too far, this will help the turkey to stay in the right space on the paper.
  • When they are done, they will walk with their HAND UP as to not touch anyone or anything.
  • Have two students at your table at a time so one can watch while the other does it.  This models for them what they will need to do.
  • Don’t push the hand too hard because the fingers may move on the paper.
  • Let the kids draw on the legs, beak, eye, and wattle.  We use marker and it only takes about an hour or so for the paint to dry.
