WHAT YOU NEED


For each Turkey
  • 1 - 3 x 3 x 3 inch gift box (available at box stores)
  • 1 sheet each of brown, yellow, orange felt
  • 1 sheet each of orange and yellow craft foam
  • 1 Brown pom-pom (2 inch)
  • 1 pair safety scissors
  • Cellophane tape
  • Craft glue gun
  • Google eyes
  • Fabric paint
  • Packages of WONKA® candy such as: NERDS®, RUNTS®, GOBSTOPPERS®, SHOCKTARTS®, and LAFFY TAFFY®

HOW TO DO IT
  • Fill the gift box with candy treats like NERDS®, RUNTS®, GOBSTOPPERS®, SHOCKTARTS®, and LAFFY TAFFY®.

  • Print out the template

  • Using the template, cut the feathers from the yellow and orange felt and body squares from the brown felt.

  • Using the template cut out the beak and feet from the appropriate colors of craft foam.

  • Use a craft glue gun to secure the brown felt to each side of the box.

  • Hot glue the brown pom-pom to the top of the box. Glue on the google eyes and craft foam beak.

  • To form the tail, glue together 3 orange felt feathers, and 2 yellow felt feathers, making sure to alternate the colors.

  • Glue the tail to the back of the turkey.

  • To form each wing, glue an orange felt feather on top of a yellow felt feather. Glue one wing to each side of the turkey.

  • Glue the craft foam feet to the bottom of the box.

  • Use a fabric paint applicator to write a child's name on each turkey's chest.

HOW TO PLAY IT

  • Make a Turkey for each child.

  • Before your friends and family arrive, hide the Turkeys in selected areas of your house.

  • Choose an appropriate time after everyone arrives to begin the game.

  • Gather all of the children together and tell them that there are little turkeys hiding all over the house.

  • Each child must search for, and bring back only the turkey with his or her name on it.

  • If you include very small children in the hunt, send older children along to assist.

  • After everyone has found their turkey, have them carefully open it's top and enjoy the candy treats inside!

TIPS
  • After the candy has been eaten, these cute little turkeys make perfect storage boxes for tiny treasures.
