Emma disguised this turkey as a kindergarten homework assignment. She was surprisingly uninterested in the project – until I suggested that she dress him up as Mike (who only rarely wears a suit to work, but it looks so much more impressive!) It’s a good thing this was described as a “family project”, because I had to help her cut out the shapes to look the way she wanted them to, and she refused to color more than a handful of feathers. She did enjoy gluing on the disguise. =) I think that this turkey in disguise Thanksgiving craft for kids is one that older children would probably enjoy even more.
I’m thinking these turkeys could use a lesson from Emma’s paper turkey – there were twenty-one of them partying in our yard Monday morning! They barely moved when I opened the door to take a photo – those tail feathers were already up, showing off who is in charge, I guess. They weren’t nearly as shy as the deer we saw Saturday!
This guy spooked the second I stepped outside. Check out all the white fur on his tail!
