So fall at school is apparently the time of the crazy, crafty projects. My little first grader has been a whirlwind of detailed, creative projects. The turkey disguise projects had the crafty-party-lady side of me screaming “Wahoo…let’s get crafting!”, while the busy-busy-working-mom side of me was in tears on the bathroom floor….”Can’t a girl just get an evening off???” Ok, I might be exaggerating a bit (a lot), but coming up with an awesome Turkey in Disguise sent me to my favorite place (the couch with my iPad and the Pinterest app) to look for some inspiration.
I found a few awesome ideas, my favorites I’m sharing below. My daughter, however, had her little heart set on DARTH VADER. You know that moment when you realize you are an awesome mom and are doing things right? Yeah…it’s when your 6-year-old girl chooses Darth Vader. Just saying…
Here is our turkey in disguise:
And of course, my little sweetie proudly displaying her turkey project. It was actually pretty simple to do. Here is the Turkey Template we used. We traced the pieces out on copy paper and cut them up to make templates. Then we traced them onto different pieces of construction paper. Then we cut them out of construction paper and glued it all on the cardstock template.
We then “helped” my daughter draw on the details.
Update: We have since made several more Turkeys in Disguise…apparently this is a teacher favorite…here are some more of our creations:
Turkey in Disguise: Princess Leia and Wonder Woman
A turkey Princess Leia…also made by cutting out construction paper along with a turkey Wonder Woman! My girls love their sci-fi and comics!!! These were both done with the smae process of cutting a template and tracing onto card stock.
If you are a teacher or momma looking for a turkey template…this one is free and adorable!
Here are a few other ideas…
