Turkey Party (Bouquet Event)




Well it is November so what better time to have a Turkey Morning! We had several 3-4 year olds over some turkey fun! We started out with a turkey trot, then read Thanksgiving is Here by Diane Goode, then the kids and their moms made stuffed turkeys and cookie turkeys to eat! Gobble Gobble!

Enjoy the ideas for a
Turkey Party for
Sprouts and Seedlings (toddler/preschool and elementary age)...

The Stuff
The FUN!
  • Newspaper
  • Brown paper bag
  • Stapler
  • Paper cut into feathers
  • Things to decorate feathers with (Googley eyes, feather, pom poms, sequins, etc)
  • Glue
  • Orange head, yellow beak, red gobbler, Googley eyes
  • Orange legs accordion folded

1. Stuff newspaper into bag and staple over.

2. Decorate paper feathers (they are easiest to attach if they are put together like a fan and then stapled at the bottom, then stapled to back of bag).

3. Make face and glue on front of bag.

4. Fold legs and glue (or staple) on bottom of bag.

Display!


The Stuff
The FUN!
  • Cookie
  • Candy for face parts
  • Fruit slices for feathers
  • Pretzel for legs
    *optional – frosting or peanut butter

1. Kids make face with candy. Can use frosting or peanut butter to hold in place.

2. Then add fruit feathers.
Gobble down!
