The Turkey Game is perfect for all ages because it can be used to practice almost anything!
Download and print the turkey template (below). Cut it out and tape it to the top of an empty tissue box. If you cut around the turkey’s body and leave his feet off it will be the right height. Cut an opening below the eyes for a mouth. Use it to play one or all of these turkey games.
