Thumbprint Turkeys

1st grade turkeys!

First graders used their thumbprints to create a whole flock of turkeys!  First we pressed our thumbs into the stamp pad for two seconds.  Then we pressed our thumbs against the paper for another two seconds.  After washing our thumbs off, we then used skinny Sharpies to draw in turkey details, such as beaks, wattles, wings, feathers, and feet!  Many students thought of different activities for their turkeys — I saw turkeys eating worms, turkeys flying, turkeys running, and one turkey trying to eat the sun!  (“He’s a weird turkey,” according to the artist.)
