Hi everyone, it’s time for our monthly Kid Craft Stars challenge! Every month we have a challenge between a few blogger friends and I, to in-cooperate a different craft medium or technique into a simple kid craft. If you’re new here check out #kidcraftstars on Instagram to see what we’ve been up to and our past challenges. This months challenge was to come up with a paper plate themed craft. We did a fun handprint turkey using paper plates. Check out the tutorial below to get started.

To start off you’ll want to paint two paper plates brown, and cut one of the paper plates into a smaller circle which will be used for the head of the turkey.
After your paint has dried you can glue it onto your larger brown paper plate and attach everything for the face.
We added some handprints around the top of the turkey for the feathers, you can use any colors you’d like for this step. We stuck with red, yellow, and orange. Simply have your child trace his or her hand and cut them out, we did a total of 6 handprints. Then glue them onto the back of the paper plate.
To finish your turkey you can cut out little feet from yellow construction paper and glue that to the bottom of your paper plate.
