What do you do with kids on Thanksgiving? Grab some stickers and make this sticker turkey activity! Keep kids busy while you prep for dinner or entertain guests.

Thanksgiving can be a tricky day with kids. Parents have a lot they need to get done and kids want some attention and fun too! Putting together a simple activity can keep everyone happy and might even keep kids out of your hair for a few minutes.

Thanksgiving dinner can also be tough. Kids might only eat a few rolls and then be ready to go off and play. Having a mess free activity to keep kids occupied while the adults have time to chat is always a win.

What do you need for this sticker turkey activity?

Stickers, paper, and markers. That’s it.

If you want to tape the paper to the table so it doesn’t move around, grab some painters tape too.

You don’t need special stickers. Just pull out any stickers that you have. You can also give kids markers or crayons so that they can decorate the turkeys even more if you want.
