Thanksgiving Craft: Finger Stamp Place Cards

Finger Stamp Place Cards

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

These handy little birds are great seat markers and a fun predinner activity. Have the younger set make them for the rest of the family, or let everyone try his hand -- or at least a finger -- at making his own.


  • Card stock as shown
  • Nontoxic stamp pads in brown, red, orange, and yellow
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Paint markers


For each bird, fold a piece of card stock as shown (ours were roughly 3 by 4 inches). Set out nontoxic stamp pads in brown, red, orange, and yellow. Using your thumb or index finger, stamp rings of yellow, orange, and red, and a brown turkey body.

Glue googly eyes in place, then use paint markers to draw on a beak, snood, and feet and to write a guest's name below the bird.
