My Kindergartener came home with this turkey craft as Family Homework assignment last week. It was too cute to not share.
Each student was given a blank turkey template for this pre-Thanksgiving Day craft.
The assignment was each family had to work together to disguise the turkey so he would not be recognizable. Personally, I wanted to make him look like Santa. I’d color the back of him brown like Santa’s sack. Then, I’d use red fabric and cotton to give him his costume.
My son didn’t like that idea. Instead we used some shells and transformed Tom Turkey into a beach bum. (2014 update: each of my boys have done this in Kindergarten. Son 2 disguised his turkey as a Star Wars Jedi. Son 3 just disguised his as Captain America.)
What do you think? How would you disguise a turkey? How would your children disguise a turkey? Print out the turkey craft template and have your kids try it themselves. We’d love to see their designs.
