Don't know if any of these will work but...
Play music of your choice and encourage the children to move like:
BIG turkeys, little turkeys, tired turkeys, happy turkeys, scared turkeys, etc. Make it more interesting by choosing music based on the movement you'd like to elicit.
Use pieces of masking tape to make turkey footprints all over the floor. Start playing music. Have children pretend to be turkeys and strut around the room. When you stop the music, have the turkeys find footprints to stand on (one turkey to a footprint). When you start the music again, have the turkeys continue strutting about the room.
Instead of the Hokey Pokey Dance --- Do THE TURKEY JERKY
You put your right wing in; you put your right wing out,
You put your right wing in, and you gobble all about.
You do the turkey jerky and you turn yourself around,
That's what it's all about.
Next would be:
This simple game is similar to musical chairs - except you need no chairs! Children dance and move about like turkeys to the music until it stops. When the music stops, they freeze completely in the dancing position they were in. Anybody moving is out (or not) Start the music again fairly quickly and keep repeating until you have a winner. The non-players can help you spot any statue movements.
PUMPKIN or TURKEY WALK (Prizes)
This is like a regular cake walk except instead of numbers, place pictures of several Autumn/Thanksgiving items on the floor---for the children to walk on and call out the names of the items instead of numbers. Award the child that lands on the picture you cal a small prize or goody. Use fall themed music such as "Turkey In The Straw", r "Jimmy Cracked Corn" or “Over the River and Through the Woods”. Be sure each child receives a prize.
