Roll a Turkey! {With Printable}

Thanksgiving is sneaking up on me this year!  My big plans for turkey day projects are quickly giving way to big plans for traveling, cooking, baking, and perhaps even a Disneyland trip!  Time is flying by way too fast.

Little Man and I had so much fun with our Roll a Jack-O-Lantern game at Halloween, I decided to make this "Roll a Turkey" game the very same way!

If you are interested in creating your own game, definitely check out this post where I described how to make the Roll A Jack-O-Lantern game.

Here's the quick rundown:

I covered a magnetic burner cover from the dollar store with cardstock and a protective coat of mod podge for the turkey body.  Then I raided my scrapbook paper stash, cut out and laminated the different body pieces, and applied magnets to each piece.  For this game, you will need:

At least 2 googly eyes

 At least 2 feet

At least 1 head

 At least 1 beak

 At least 1 gobbler

At least 5 feathers

The fun part about this game is that because you are likely to roll a number more than once, your turkey may end up with 3 eyes, 8 feathers, and 2 beaks!  So having extra parts comes in handy!

By the way, I store all of the parts in a ziplock baggie on the underside of the burner cover.  Because of the magnets on the backs of each piece, they stick nicely all on their own!

You can download your own "Roll a Turkey" game sheet here.

I printed mine on yellow cardstock and laminated it.

We are using the same dice I created for the jack-o-lantern game, although you can definitely use a regular game dice!

Gobble, gobble!

Roll A Jack-O-Lantern {Creative Carousel}

I hope you've been enjoying The Creative Carousel this week!

Fall has really inspired me!  As the temperatures have dropped just a few degrees, I have hit a huge surge of creativity.  I am knee-deep in several fall projects!  Today I decided to share the project that best defines me.

No matter how hard I try to make something just for me--I am always so much more motivated to make a project that the whole family (specifically Little Man!) can enjoy!  So once again, the Mom AND the Teacher in me have joined forces on this little project.

Let me introduce you to our brand spankin' new Roll A Jack-O-Lantern game!

And guess what--I only spent $1 on this project. {Insert husband's congratulations here!}

PLUS there are some downloads at the end of this post to help you create your own game at home.

This game is versatile.  You can adapt it however you would like for your own family!

The idea of the game is to build a jack-o-lantern, with the help of the dice!

I started out with a $1 burner cover from the Dollar Tree.  Yes, there was a rooster on it.  But most importantly, it was magnetic!

I quickly covered that rooster with some orange scrapbook paper.  I added a layer of protective mod podge over the top (because it will be getting plenty of use!), and distressed the edges a bit, too.

Next, I got to work creating the jack-o-lantern pieces.  You will need....

At least 2 eyes (I made 6!)

At least 1 nose

At least 1 mouth

At least 2 teeth
