What It Is
If you're looking for a creative activity for your child to do this Thanksgiving, then the Thanksgiving Turkeys kit from Kiwi Crate might be just the thing. Thanksgiving Turkeys comes with everything kids need to make two different turkey-themed projects.
With My Place Cards, kids can create adorable turkey place cards out of clay, feathers, googly eyes, felt, glue dots, and pom-poms. Write down each guest's name on the included place cards and place the turkey place cards at the table on Thanksgiving.
After you're done gobbling up all that turkey, you can create and play My Turkey Game, a carnival-style ball toss game. The object of the game is to knock over the turkey. Decorate the pieces and set up the turkey. Then, toss the ball to hit all the feathers and see who can knock over the turkey first.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fun and creative hands-on activity that kids can do around Thanksgiving. Kids will love being part of the Thanksgiving preparations by making the place cards and having something fun to play after dinner. You can play the My Turkey Game even after Thanksgiving has passed.
Who It’s For
Thanksgiving Turkeys is for ages 3–7. Kiwi Crate says that My Turkey Game has low mess and low grownup involvement rankings, while My Place Cards has medium mess and medium grownup involvement rankings. Kids will probably not need much help in setting up the game, but younger kids, especially, might need assistance when making the place cards.
What To Be Aware Of
The glue dots on the turkey place cards didn't stick so well. You might need to use something else as reinforcement.
Kiwi Crate also has a subscription service. For $19.95 a month, the company will send your child a crate filled with themed activities that kids can put together themselves and play with. You don't need to subscribe to order the Thanksgiving Turkeys kit.
