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:

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!

How to make printable games reusable:

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.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
