thanksgiving hands

Arts and crafts with an 8 month old... Seriously. Am I crazy? 

But we pulled it off.

Jake and I {ok, so maybe just me} decided to make Thanksgiving cards this year. We were both pretty optimistic about it from the get go. 

Check out that smile!

I designed some 5x7 cards {grab them  h e r e } before we started with the paint.
I was only planning on making a couple of cards for family members, but I knew this would be a difficult task so I definitely had double that many cards to begin with. Momma didn't raise no fool.

First up was the palm of the hand and the thumb. 
I used a paintbrush to put the brown paint on Jake's hand.

There wasn't any of the mess that I anticipated, but he really was not a fan of the paint...

Next we did the finger feathers. 
Different colors, one at a time.

Once the feathers were dry, I added a beak, gobble and turkey legs with a felt pen.

"Oh my gosh Mom, please say we're done!!"

All done and ready to go out to the family!

I think these are neat to mail to family to maybe to bring to your Thanksgiving dinner for everyone!

  1. Those came out great! My little one hated having paint on her hands when I did a Halloween card - and it ended up being a total mess! Glad you didn't have too much clean up.
