Turkey Hide and Seek


Have one child cover his or her eyes. Invite another child to be the turkey and to hide in the classroom. Ask the first child to try to find the turkey. If the child is far from the hidden turkey, the rest of the class gobbles softly. If the child gets close to the hidden turkey, the rest of the class gobbles loudly until the turkey is found.

Alternate idea: You might substitute a cardboard turkey shape for using a child as the turkey.
