"Turkey in the Straws" is a tricky Thanksgiving holiday game that's a lot of fun to play with family!

What You'll Need:

Large, empty margarine tub

Drinking straws

Plastic cup

Lay several drinking straws crosswise on the margarine tub. Now balance a cup, turned upside down, on the straws.

Each player takes a turn removing 1 straw at a time. Whoever pulls the straw that makes the cup fall down is the "turkey." He or she must gobble out loud!

Practice this game by yourself -- you won't be the turkey next time you play with friends!
