This Build a Turkey Play Dough Kit is an awesome boredom buster for kids! This simple Thanksgiving busy box is perfect for taking on the go to keep your child entertained during Holiday outings.
Every year for the holidays we bounce from house to house to make sure we get to spend the holidays with both sides of our family. It’s a super busy time of year for us. One of the things that we routinely run into while visiting family is showing up at a family members house that is not kid friendly.
Having 5 kids means we really needed to find an easy solution to this – something quick to throw together, easy to travel with, and something that wouldn’t make a huge mess while the kids played with it. This build a turkey playdough kit is one of our solutions!
