Turkey Trap

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 15 minutes

Materials:

  • 1 cardboard box
  • 1 sturdy stick
  • A few kernels of corn
  • Feathers
  • Candy corn

Engage your child's imagination with this activity. This may become a family tradition for years to come.

  1. Tell your child that you are going to trap a turkey for Thanksgiving.
  2. Set the cardboard box upside down and prop up one end with the stick. Show your child how the turkey will knock the stick over to make the box fall. Place some corn under the box to serve as bait.
  3. Overnight, remove the corn and replace with the feathers and candy corn. If you want, you can add a little note/poem from the Turkey: "You tried to catch me, but I can't be beat. So I left some candy for you to eat!"
