Got some little ones to entertain this fall? This is the perfect Thanksgiving game for toddlers and preschoolers and even older kids!
Use this free printable game to entertain the children at the Thanksgiving table, during dinner, or while you’re preparing. They’ll love seeing all the bright colors of the turkey and most importantly, the candy that they get to consume during it!
The free printable comes with two game boards on one 8.5″ x 11″ sheet. Cut it in half for the game boards to be 8.5″ x 5.5″.
The option that you can download is for the preschooler/kindergarten version of the game using M&M candies. You can also find a version for older children (modified by using 2 dice) and a version using skittles (with different colors for allergy free children) that you can purchase here.
What You Need:
- Free printable Roll-A-Turkey game sheet
- 1 Dice
How to Play:
1. Receive the FREE printable Roll-A-Turkey Game by signing up below. Download and the print the file which includes 2 cards per sheet.
2. Cut each page in half and get as many cards for the amount of players that you have.
3. Pour a bowl of plain M&Ms into a small bowl in front of each child or depending on the age and cooperativeness of the child, an adult can hold on to the bowl of M&Ms.
4. Have each child roll one dice. When the dice is rolled, tell the child to count the number of dots on the dice. This is a great way to learn counting! Larger dice are best for playing this game with preschoolers so they can really see the dots. I love these dice (2.5″) or these dice (4″) because they make great toys too!
5. Once they count up all the dots, show them how to check the color code on the bottom of the sheet.
6. Use the code to place the candies by color.
7. The first person to fill their turkey wins!
If you’d like the Skittles version using allergy-free candies (Skittles) or the upgraded version for older kids (using 2 dice), purchase those games for a small fee here.
I hope you and your little ones enjoy this fun Thanksgiving table game for preschoolers and young kids. Happy Holidays!
