The 12866 – Kids, parents, grandparents, friends, and relatives near and far are invited to take part in Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery’s first online Make-a-Turkey-Out-of-a-Potato Festival!

The Tang tradition, now in its 18th year, aims to inspire intergenerational creativity for the holidays. For the first time, it is all happening online at

Starting Saturday, November 21 (AKA Today!,) the Tang Museum Education Team will present a video and downloadable instructions for four ways of making unique holiday decorations using a slew of materials you may have at home, such as construction paper, buttons, pipe cleaners, toothpicks, popsicle sticks—and even potatoes and other fruits and vegetables!

In the right hands, paper can gobble too!

Visit to watch the video, see a list of suggested materials, and download the instructions. Once you make your holiday creations, share them with us by sending images to Museum Educator Sunny Ra at or post them on your own social media accounts by including the hashtag #TangTeachingMuseum. Send your work in by November 29 for a chance for your creations to be shared on the Tang’s social media!
