This year, my first grader came home with something I hadn’t heard of before. We were given a family project – the Turkey in Disguise project. We had a paper cut out turkey and were instructed we had to dress him up somehow so he doesn’t look like a turkey and will presumably, with our creative success, escape his fate on Thanksgiving day.
Of course I took to Pinterest to get some ideas and wasn’t let down! Here’s what our final project was – we ended up going with a Leprechaun turkey in disguise – my boys were saying maybe as a Leprechaun he would be lucky enough to not get eaten. What do you guys think?
This first one is ours and then I added a collection of others I thought were great ideas so hopefully help you in the future!

Friends of ours did this next one and I thought it was really clever!
Turkey in Disguise – Where’s Waldo?
Looking to disguise your own turkey at home for fun? I found this Disguise a Turkey Template on Scholastic’s site – it’s not as involved as ours but you can add a beak and feathers if you so choose.
