Google Doodle celebrates Thanksgiving 2019 with a tribute to “hand turkeys,” a simple-to-make holiday bonding activity that pays tribute to a childhood arts-and-crafts project honoring the holiday. In an exceedingly new animated doodle Wednesday, Google is paying tribute to those crayon hand turkeys you used to draw back in preschool.
A period for gathering with friends and family and expressing thanks for the blessings throughout your life, Americans of all walks of life observe this holiday on the last Thursday in November.
Most Americans can build “hand turkeys” in school when they were children – an art project that enclosed following the outline of your hand with colored pencils or markers.
The subsequent shape sees your fingers become feathers and your thumb becomes the head of the bird and exposes a small likeness to a turkey.
The drawing is then finished with beaks, feet and also the red skin that hangs about to the turkey’s beak known as the snood.
Out of appreciation for Thanksgiving, which happens on 28 November 2019, the Google Doodle highlights crayon drawings of hand turkeys bouncing into a pile of leaves.
Happy Thanksgiving 2019!
