This is such a simple activity for toddlers. And my toddlers definitely love hand printing activities!
Materials needed: Acrylic paint (Fall color of choice); a sheet of construction paper – not the same color as the paint; markers or crayons, ruler, pencil, craft eyes (optional).
To make: Fold the construction paper in half (vertically or horizontally). Place some acrylic paint on a plate. The child will use the paint to make a hand print on the construction paper. (Make sure to guide the child’s hand in the right direction so the turkey would not be upside-down or sideways. You may need to practice a couple times on other construction paper before getting a good print). When the paint is dried, glue on a craft eye or draw it on with a marker. Then draw on a goblet and some feet. Next, draw a line at the top left of the card to write in the name of the child.
I know the photo lighting was not the best for this one. But despite this, what do you think of these easy place cards?
