My students and I are celebrating Thanksgiving with this fun fingerprint art activity, and I thought you might like to try it, too! When working on articulation, I conduct articulation drill as usual and allow the students to add X number of thumbprint feathers after each round of drill. During language therapy, I use this as a follow up activity for any Thanksgiving themed book. I read one of my favorite “turkey books” and then expand it with this art project. Also, it’s great for working on following directions or just for discussing and describing the star of the Thanksgiving feast --- the turkey!!
Use stamp pads in various colors to make the turkey feathers. There are arched lines to guide students where to press their finger or thumb; follow the arched lines. After the feathers are all in pressed, use one big thumbprint as the turkey head and body. Then use permanent markers to draw in eyes, a beak, a waddle and stick legs/claws.
To see exactly how I use it read my blog post all about it!
