Thanksgiving Wreath

Happy Thanksgiving

Cardboard, cut into a 12" circle
Construction Paper:
Red, Brown, Orange, Yellow & Green


Cut a piece of cardboard into the shape of a 12" circle.

Fold each construction paper in half and then fold it in half again.

Place your child's hand in the corner of the folded construction paper and trace their hand with a pencil.

Keeping the paper folded, cut the hand print out. Do this for the remaining colors of construction paper.

Starting at the top of the ring, glue the first hand print on the ring putting glue only on the palm of the print, leaving the fingers free.

Changing the color of the hand print as you go, glue the next hand print clockwise from the first hand print. This direction will allow the fingers to stay on top instead of being covered.

Glue or staple a ribbon in place on the back of the wreath. This will allow the wreath to hang from a door or window.

You can have your child add a "Happy Thanksgiving" sign to the wreath or Thanksgiving stickers or any other decoration to spice up the wreath.

This project is easy and you'll be able to find these items already in your house.
