Turkey Prints

By Kira On November 16, 2011 Under Craft

OK, I have officially caught the pinterest bug and LOVE some of the ideas that I have found over the past few months!! Today I decided to use one of them as a project with my kids…we made Turkeys out of footprints! I have great plans for these and am hoping to have them finished by the weekend and displayed proudly in my front hall! For now I thought I would show off my one that is almost finished (the babies as she is too little to paint herself) and give a short tutorial on how we did this :-) If you want to see the one I got the idea from check it out here.

So I am not sure if the photo really does it justice or maybe I am just biased but I thought it was pretty cute!!

Ok now onto the short and sweet photo tutorial…

Step 1 – paint the bottom of your childs foot brown (I used a paint roller we have to go with our craft paints and just rolled the paint on). Then gently place the painted foot on your paper.


Step 2 – Paint feathers…for this I outlined lightly in pencil were I wanted the feathers to make it easier on my kids when they are painting. You can see below the one my 4yr old painted this evening.


Step 3 – Once the paint has all dried you can add any extra designs you want. On the one below I added quiet a few additional designs. However, on the ones my 4 & 7yr old are painting we will vary the designs based on what they are capable of doing. I also used a black sharpie to add the eyes.

There you have it…my Turkey print project :-)

    That is really cool. Love the lil toes 😀 It could also be used for a peacock.
