Back when I was in college, I majored in fine art. That meant tons of drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpting and plenty more! Some of my classmates had the ability to sit down and just draw something from memory. I always thought this was so amazing as I was never able to do that very well.

Sure, I could draw the basics from my head. A dog, a tree, a basic face etc. But when it came to detail, I typically always needed some kind of reference. Whether it was a photograph or looking at a live object, I definitely needed a little bit of help to get started.

Years later, with kids of my own, I still try to incorporate as much art as possible into our daily routines. When my kids and I sit down with a blank piece of paper and some crayons, I still feel that sense of, “oh no, how do I get started?”

Of course, children generally have no problem just getting right into the arts and crafts, but I like to have somewhat of a starting point.

After a while I started switching it up sometimes and printing out coloring pages instead of simply having blank paper available. I find coloring oftentimes more relaxing than starting to draw from scratch, and the kids have a lot of fun with the coloring pages as well.

We’ll use different themed coloring pages based on the season, upcoming holiday, or whatever cartoon character they are into at the moment.

I then decided that I wanted to start making my own coloring pages for them to use. Today, I wanted to share this free printable Turkey coloring page. It is a great activity to incorporate into the fall season and especially on or around Thanksgiving Day.

Whether you need to keep the kids occupied while cooking dinner, or just need a fun project for them to work on during a rainy day, this coloring page will give them the inspiration needed to let their creativity run wild!
