Our 5 year old came home very excited to do another project for her kindergarten class. She said “Mom I have to dress a turkey so no one will eat it.” I was thinking your going to dress a turkey it is going to be eaten for sure! Then it was made clear that she had to disguise a turkey. I got all kinds of ideas to make a turkey disguise and offered them to her for options.
She chose the following:
- Strips of an old pom pom to make a skirt
- Felt to make a shirt
You will need those items and…
- scotch tape
- and your imagination.
I figured we would start from there and figure out the rest.
How we make a Turkey Disguise:
- The printout we received from school was just thin paper so we cut out her turkey and glued it onto thicker card stock paper.
2. Next we cut some pom poms the kids had. If you cut some from the underside, no one will ever know there are pieces missing.
3. Tape the pom pom strips 3/4 of the way up to the turkey’s waistline and flip the remaining section over. Trim the bottom a little bit to make it more even and viola, a poofy skirt.
4. Next she decided the Turkey needed big hair to disguise it better. So we cut a hair style from yellow felt. She even has a little bit of bangs.
5. It was time to get a shirt on this Turkey. Use scraps or more felt. We used purple felt for the top, a left over piece of an old shirt I had been saving and and blue piece of felt for a belt. We also made a little bow. My daughter also wanted her to have pom poms.
Have you ever had to help make a Turkey Disguise before? What was it?
