I have found if there are a lot of little kids running around at your holiday it is nice to take a little time out and provide them with a craft or activity of somekind. Children seem to enjoy some organized playtime and it gives you a chance to see what kind of a mess they have created in the rest of your house.
We really had a good time making these. Some of the kids were concerned when they didn't turn out like the picture but I assured them it was ok. I explained all turkeys are different and however they turned out was just right. The best part of course was eating them later in the evening:)
