DIY Turkey Bowling

Looking for a new fall game both kids and adults can play? DIY Turkey Bowling is the perfect game to play indoors or on the backyard patio. After your Thanksgiving feast, gather up your friends and family for some fun family-friendly competition.

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here's What You'll Need:

  • 10 2-Liter Drink Containers
  • Brown Spray Paint
  • Red & Orange Paper
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • Plastic Googly Eyes
  • Feathers 
  • Foam or Rubber Ball
  • Black Marker

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Empty drink containers of their contents (we used juice bottles). Rinse out thoroughly with water and allow to dry, then replace the caps on the bottles (see image #1).
  2. Spray paint each bottle brown in a well-ventilated area, preferably outside (see image #2).
  3. Allow the bottles to dry fully for about 30 minutes.
  4. Cut out beaks using orange construction paper and gobble shapes (technically called the turkey "snood") using red construction paper (see image #4). Using a hot glue gun, adhere the eyes, beaks, and gobbles directly to the painted bottles (see image #5).
  5. Lastly, using a hot glue gun, attach colorful feathers to the back of each turkey bottle (see image #6).
  6. Allow all bottles to dry until set for about five minutes.
  7. Set up your turkeys in a bowling pin arrangement, grab your ball, and start turkey bowling!
