Turkey Hunt: A Thanksgiving Family Tradition!

Thanksgiving is one of our all-time favorite holidays! It doesn’t get much better than sweater weather, delicious food, and great company. Oh, and there will be pie. We can’t forget about all of the pie! Waiting for dinner is the only downside… Psst, today we’ve got a fun family activity to fill the time. Take the whole family out for a Turkey Hunt! This is sure to be a new Thanksgiving family tradition your kiddos will LOVE! Don’t worry, no turkeys were harmed in the writing of this post.

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to make lifelong memories as a family! We have a whole section of our site dedicated just to Thanksgiving! {I know, right?!} We love coming up with creative ideas for our families and yours. With the help of one of our favorite designers, Kayley at Ollie and Lulu we’ve created a Thanksgiving game that is sure to be a favorite! 

The Hunt is On!

We’ve created two different turkey hunts for your family! Send the kiddos out in search of turkeys or feathers. {OR do them both! Turkeys take a long time to cook!} Hide the turkeys or feathers around the house/yard. The first person to find all of the turkeys and mark them off on their game card wins a prize!

 Thanksgiving Turkey Hunt Family Tradition

My little 3-year-old was super excited about the idea of tracking down turkeys. We did a little test run before Thanksgiving and he had a blast. I can only imagine how fun it will be with all of the cousins playing together.

Thanksgiving Turkey Hunt Game

Turkeys and Feathers

When playing the Turkey Feather Hunt, each person collects 7 different feathers for their turkey. Once each person finds all of their feathers, glue or tape them back onto the poor featherless turkey. {HINT – it might be a good idea to number the feathers so each person is only hunting for the feathers with their number on it.} When playing the Turkey Hunt the whole group is hunting for the same 8 turkeys. Once a player finds one they cross it off of their card. Once all of the feathers or turkeys have been hunted down there is a PRIZE!!

Printable Treat Boxes

Are you geeking out over this treat box like I am?? It even has a little pilgrim buckle on it… {Squeal!!} Print off a few of these so each little hunter can have their own. These boxes are a cinch to put together – as easy as pie! {YAY, Pie!} Just print on cardstock. Then cut, fold, glue, and fill with some of your favorite holiday candy.
