Are you ready to make your own Turkey Game?????
Felt (brown, white, orange, red, and black)
Batting or stuffing
Tacky glue or fabric glue
1. I started by cutting 4"diameter circles out of brown felt. You will need two circles for each turkey.
2. I cut out the eyes, nose, and "gobbler" and attached them with tacky (all-purpose) glue.
3. Next, I put a little batting between the two brown circle layers and sewed around the edge.
If you don't sew, you could easily just glue the brown felt on a circle of cardboard or glue the two layers together.
4. I selected six different colors/patterns of scrapbook paper and modge podged them on clothespins. Each player will need their own turkey and set of six clothespins.
5. I elected to use an old A,B,C block I had around the house for our dice. I modge podged the six coordinating scrapbook papers on the "dice."
6. Let all the modge podge dry and you are ready to play your hand crafted Turkey Game!
Each player gets a turkey head and six clothespins of different colors. The first player roles the dice. The player gets to put on the feather color (clothespin) they roll on the dice. Take turns trying to collect all of your different colored turkey feathers. If you roll a color you already have, the turn goes to the next player. The first person to have all six different feathers (clothespins) shouts Gobble, Gobble, Gobble and wins the game!
Thanks Marsha for commenting it would also be fun to play the game the opposite direction, and "pluck" the feathers off, as you roll the colors. Great suggestion!
We had family night last night and roasted marshmallows and played our turkey game.
My three year old said it was the best night ever. I wish I could see the world through his eyes. He is always so happy and grateful.
He quickly beat my husband and I several times at the Crazy Turkey Game.
