This activity provides tactile input and works on finger isolation by creating a picture of a turkey using the child’s fingerprints.
For this activity, you will need washable tempera paint or finger paint in 4 colors (e.g. yellow, red, pink, and brown).
Ask the child to dip the tip of the thumb into the brown color and press the thumb onto the paper twice. Thumbprints should be one next to the other. This will be the body of the turkey.
Ask the child to dip the tip of the index finger into the pink color and add a row of pink fingerprints above the brown ones. This will be the feathers.
Ask the child to add more rows of fingerprints (feathers) in yellow and red colors.
Glue the wiggle eyes to the brown turkey body. Add feet using the markers or crayons.
