Kids and adult alike will have a blast playing this game and the best part is that when they’re done, they can all eat the M&Ms!

How to play the Roll a Turkey Game

Each person will roll one dice. Use the key to determine which color M&M should be placed on the turkey’s feathers. Keep rolling the dice until all of the feathers have been filled in with the correct colors. When complete, you can eat all of the M&Ms!

Roll a Turkey – Free Printable Thanksgiving Game

2 games will print per 8.5×11 inch page. For the best quality, I would recommend printing on white cardstock. Once printed you can cut the two games apart using scissors or a paper cutter.

Feel fee to print as many copies off the game as you would like. However, please do not edit or redistribute the files in any way. This game was created for personal or classroom use only.

Add some competition when playing with adults

This roll a turkey game doesn’t have to be just for kids. To make it a little more interesting, give each person a dice and small bowl of M&Ms. Say GO and have everyone roll the dice and try to fill in the turkey’s feathers as fast as they can. Whoever finishes first gets to eat everyones candy!

Make the game more durable for plenty of use!

Once you get started playing this roll a turkey game, you are going to want to keep playing! To ensure that the game holds up for multiple rounds (and multiple kids!) you may want to make the game board a little more sturdy.

I would highly recommend printing out the game onto white cardstock and then laminating with a home lamination machine. This is the home lamination machine that I currently have on my work desk and I absolutely love it!

Laminating the game will make it more durable and also be able to wipe clean should any color from M&Ms or any other Thanksgiving food make its way onto the game board.
