Pin the Tail on the Turkey

Help the Thanksgiving turkey get a tail!


Here's a great game for everyone to play after that big Thanksgiving meal. It's guaranteed to get everyone giggling! Draw a large, silly-looking turkey without any tail feathers on a piece of poster board. Hang it on the back of a door or on a wall. Draw lots of turkey tail feathers on construction paper, and cut them out. Put a small piece of double-sided tape on the end of each feather. To play pin the tail on the turkey, use a bandanna to blindfold players one at a time. Twirl them around 3 times, and point them in the direction of the turkey. Who can pin the tail on the turkey? Perhaps the prize will be a big slice of pumpkin pie!


What you'll need:

-large poster board


-construction paper

-double-sided tape
