Give your children some exercise by inviting them to move like turkeys. Tell children to waddle like a turkey as you give these verbal instructions:

  • waddle like a chubby turkey
  • move like a fast turkey
  • waddle like a sad turkey
  • move like a scared turkey
  • move like a silly turkey

Add other commands as you think of them.
