Paper Cup Gobblers

(These will make a parents crazy, but kids love them)

Use a yellow paper cup - not the small size but coffee size or larger.

With the cup upside down - use colored paper or construction paper to make a beak and the red thingy on its head.


Use black marker or wiggly eyes.

Then take kite string, or other natural fiber string (not nylon or twine) cut about 16" depending on the size of your cup. Tape it inside on the center of the bottom of the cup so when you hold up your gobbler the cup is upside down and the string is hanging down around 8-10" or so.

Now, wet the string slightly and wet your fingers - pull your fingers down the string and your gobbler will gobble.
