Keepsake Hand Print Turkey Tile Art


My four year old son had so much fun making these Keepsake Hand Print Turkey Tiles with me. They were easy to do, and will make great Thanksgiving Day gifts for family members. 

Materials:

1 Tile (large enough for your child's hand print)
Non Toxic Acrylic Paint (57 Cents a bottle @ Walmart)
(We Used Cranberry, Nutmeg Brown, Black, Blue Bonnet, Golden Sunset, and Harvest Orange paint)
Acrylic Sealer Spray
Ribbon 
20 Gauge Gold Jewelry Wire
 Glue E-6000
Gold Metallic Sharpie 


Directions:

With paint brushes, paint your child's hand, using turkey colors. Your child maybe able to do this on his or her own, depending on their age. My son however enjoyed letting me tickle his hand with the paint brushes. Press hand covered in paint, down on tile, in shape of turkey, fingers together, thumb out. I then added an eye, and some feet, with a little more paint.  Let paint dry, then use a metallic Sharpie to write on your tile whatever you desire. We wrote "Gobble Gobble", "Give Thanks", and child's initials and year. Then spray with your sealer. Once dry, glue wire to the backside of tile, for hanging. I used E-6000 glue. Decorate with your ribbon prior to gifting.

Well that's what we have been up to, what about you? Come share at our weekly Anything Goes linky party.
