Thumbprint Turkey Place Cards Hip2Save

Looking for a simple and festive craft you can make with the kids this Thanksgiving?  These glittery thumbprint turkeys are so cute and fun to make! They will look great on your turkey day table and are an easy keepsake to put out each year.

For this craft, you’ll need:

  • craft paint in Fall colors
  • small paint brush
  • glue or tape
  • cardstock or heavy paper
  • clothespins
  • gold glitter
  • Decoupage (Such as Mod Podge)
  • Sharpie

Thumbprint turkey instructions


Dip your child’s index finger in paint and have them stamp a turkey “feather” design (shown above) going in an arch shape on your heavy weight paper. When dry, cut out the shapes.

Dip your child’s thumb  in brown paint and make the turkey head using two thumbprints. When dry pain a beak and eyes and cut out that shape.

Glue or tape the head portion to the body as shown.

Mix together a little decopauge and glitter and paint your clothespins. You may have to do a couple coats to get it even. When dry, write names on the turkeys with a marker and display on table.

I’m thinking of getting the paper portion laminated to keep for years to come. Don’t they look so cute on the table!?

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
