How to Set Up Pom Pom Turkey Drop

Grab your cardboard tubes and use the paint sticks to paint one side red, yellow and orange. I find paint sticks the easiest thing to use for activity prep. They dry quickly so that I didn’t have to wait for them to dry. You can use regular paint to colour the cardboards.

While you coloured cardboard tunes dry, create the turkey body. You can use construction paper or foam sheets whatever you have available. I used construction paper.
