Favorite Thing Friday: Hand Turkeys


I haven’t thought of a hand turkey in years, but for some reason the memory of those ridiculous five-finger turkeys hit me this Thanksgiving. This wonderful memory made me laugh and brought back the feeling of childhood fun.  That fun feeling was so strong, I grabbed a box of crayons and got to work.


Remember these?
This amazing piece of art was created by: c.b.w.

I gave him some fancy feathers and imagined a reason for the turkey to gobble. Red, orange, and brown turned my turkey into an autumn leaf for a moment. But then, his beak and feet set the record straight. He looks pretty good, don’t you think?

Go ahead and make one. You know you want to. 😉

  1. I’ve seen them around the bloggerverse and Pinterest, reminding me of those fun times as a kid in art class, but haven’t partaken in such delight in decades. Now you’ve got me thinking, since this year’s Canadian Thanksgiving has long passed, maybe for next year I’ll give it a whirl or, better yet, I’ll show my Grandson how they’re done. 🙂

    Hope you have a marvelous Thanksgiving, hand turkeys with all the trimmings! 🙂
