As a parent we find ourselves helping our little learners with some crazy homework. One project that many families will complete around Thanksgiving time relates to Turkey Disguise Ideas. As a parent of a kindergarten student last year my initial thought was “You want us to WHAT?!?!” Why in the world do turkey need to be dressed up?
The reason is a simple story titled Turkey Trouble. “Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving . . . and you’re the maincourse. But Turkey has an idea–what if he doesn’t look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!” YEP
I knew that I wanted to write a post about turkey costumes. I knew I wasn’t the only parent hoping I could get inspiration from the internet, so I took photos of some of the turkeys in disguise while I was at the school one day. A few of the turkeys in this post are ones that my friend’s children completed, and one is from a reader (thank you Deniece).
Last year we created a Pirate Turkey as a family and it was a very fun project.
Deniece emailed one of the most hoot-iful turkey projects to date. I love the wise owl her family made…and also love that she sent in the steps in their crafting process. You would not even know that owl started out as a piece of paper once upon a time! My girls would love to make pillows that look just like this turkey/owl!
LEGOs are always a hit with kid, and this turkey disguised as a LEGO is very clever.
This turkey is disguised as a kitty. The whiskers and bow are nice touches.
A peacock turkey was a pretty popular idea. I love all the glitter on this school project…and the real feathers are a great touch.
A non-glitter version of the peacock is also very pretty.
This turkey used real leave to create her disguise. The glittery sequins are fun addition.
Who would guess that there is a turkey underneath this snowman?
