12 Turkey Shirt Ideas for Thanksgiving

Your little turkeys will love these fun turkey shirt ideas for Thanksgiving!

Turkey Shirt Ideas for Thanksgiving
We started a tradition here when my oldest was just two years old.

For Thanksgiving I made him a turkey shirt. 

The kicker?

I wanted it to include his handprint or footprint so that I could look back at the shirts over the years (yes, I keep them!) and see how much he has grown!

I know I won’t be able to come up with new handprint/footprint ideas every year – there’s only such much that can be done.

But I might be able to do some variations based on these cute turkey shirt ideas.
