Turkey in Disguise

Turkeys in Disguise

        Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you know what that meansturkeys everywhere are going into hiding. Yes, thats right! Turkeys will do just about anything to avoid being your Thanksgiving meal. Help Tom Turkey survive this Thanksgiving by creating a disguise.
        A blank turkey template is being sent home today, Friday, November 6th. Please help the turkey make it safely past Thanksgiving by disguising him through the holiday he fears the most! Turkeys that have made it through in the past have been dressed like ballerinas, football players, farmers, hula dancers, Elvis, snowmen, Spiderman, a princess, Santa, and even one of our favorite second grade teachers, Mrs. Zuniga!
Your main focus is to dress your turkey in attire that will help him blend in with your family so he will go unnoticed at the Thanksgiving table!
Please have fun and be creative! You may use anything you can think of to decorate. Turkeys in the past have been decorated with crayons, macaroni, craft feathers, tissue paper, wallpaper scraps, dried beans, rice, clothes and shoes cut from newspaper ads, ribbons, fabric scraps, etc.

Please follow these directions when disguising your turkey:
1. Cut out the turkey
2. Decide how to disguise him
3. Have fun decorating

See below for examples of disguised turkeys from previous years!
