Turkey Bowling

Turkey Bowling

Gobble! Gobble! Easy enough for your littlest Thanksgiving guest, our Crayola CIY Turkey Bowling craft is as much fun to make as it is to play!




Supplies Needed: Crayola Acrylic Paint, Crayola Paint Brush, Crayola Construction Paper, Crayola Scissors, Crayola School Glue, Crayola Wiggle Eyes, Crayola Coloured Pencils, No. 2 Pencil, Plastic Cups, Clear Tape, Small Pumpkin or Ball




  • 1.

    Place a plastic cup upside-down on a flat surface. Use a Crayola Paint Brush to cover the plastic cup with brown Crayola Acrylic Paint. Once the paint is dry, add a second coat to make the paint more opaque. Repeat for 5 additional cups to create your set of “bowling pins.”

  • 2.

    To create turkey beaks, draw triangles on orange Crayola Construction Paper using a No. 2 Pencil. Cut out using Crayola Scissors.

  • 3.

    Using Crayola School Glue, attach beaks to the front of your cups.

  • 4.

    Draw and cut out wavy shapes on red construction paper and attach with glue below each beak.

  • 5.

    Glue two Crayola Wiggle Eyes along the top of each beak to complete the turkey faces.

  • 6.

    To create turkey feathers, draw large rounded triangles on different colours of construction paper and cut out. Add details to the feathers using Crayola Coloured Pencils. Attach a feather to the back of each cup using clear tape.

  • 7.

    We recommend a small faux or real pumpkin to act as your “bowling ball.” If you do not have one available, a small, medium-weight ball will work just as well.

    Set up your turkeys in a triangle formation, and start bowling!
