When I saw this idea on Pinterest, I imagined doing it with hand prints from every member of the family. The instructions are geared to kids and certainly this would be a great craft for kids to do at a family gathering. But what if each hand was from a different family member. Maybe your family can’t all be together for the holidays. You could have them send a tracing of their hand so they could be included too. I can also see this with candy in the jar instead of glitter. Candy is always a great addition to a project.
An additional idea would be to share something you are thankful about the person whose hand print it is or a story or favorite memory could be shared. You could even write it on the hand print and then attach it to the “turkey”. What love and sense of family that turkey would then represent. You can find the step by step instructions here.
If this idea inspires you, let me know. I’d love to share your project here too.

I can see this being a good busy project to have the kiddos do while the adults finish thanksgiving meal preparations. Once done, these would make great table centerpieces that could also be given to grandma after the meal or could be carried home with each family.
Oh, that would be awesome. Perfect!
