Turkey Tracks

This project was so much fun! We made turkey tracks with a plastic drinking straws.

Take a plastic drinking straw and cut it in half. I had the bendy straws, so I cut off that end. Then make four strips at end and cut one of those strips off so you are left with three strips to resemble the turkey foot. It should look like this.

Get your child a piece of paper and some paint. Show them how to dip the "turkey foot" in the paint and then have the turkey foot walk on the paper.

Then the turkey wanted to run across her paper. She had fun!

Here is the finished product. I think it came out really cool!

Bekah loved doing this so much she wanted to do another one afterwards. It kept her busy while I started dinner. Can't ask for more than that!
