Turkey Bowl

Also called Turkish Turkey Bowling. This is a great up front game for Thanksgiving.


  1. A Frozen Turkey
  2. A Drill (Optional, for drilling finger holes in turkey)
  3. Bowling Pins

How to Play:

Have several students to come up on stage to compete for the Turkish Turkey Bowling Championships. (Some youth groups will use a Borat type character to "sell" the game to the students and challenge students to compete against him... this works very well when you have the right student to do it).

Then, line up 10 pins (you can usually ask a bowling alley to borrow some pins, buy some pins online, or find cheap plastic ones, or use empty two liter bottles).

Give each student 1 throw to knock as many pins down as they can. Reward the winner. Celebrate all who participated.
