If you’re looking for a fun Thanksgiving craft to do with your kids, look no further than this Disguise a Turkey Gumball Machine!
This is a great activity to keep kids entertained while also getting them into the holiday spirit.
And who knows, you might even end up with some cute turkey-themed decoration for your home. So get out those crafting supplies and let’s get started!
I recently learned that the idea for disguising turkeys comes from this book, Turkey Trouble.
Watch the read aloud here:
The simple idea is that the turkey doesn’t want to be eaten at Thanksgiving, so it’s your child’s job to use items around your home to dress up the turkey so that the turkey won’t be found!
Have your child decide on how they want to disguise the turkey as a gumball machine.
Then, gather the necessary supplies to create the turkey! You can use crayons, markers, beads, glitter, pom poms, pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, feathers, cotton balls, sequins, and other art supplies and crafts to add to your disguise a turkey.
My pictures in this post from our Disguise a Turkey Gumball Machine can help you with your idea.
