disguise the turkey

OK folks....

My severely special needs son has come home with a disguise the turkey project for the third year in a row.

He can do NONE of it therefore I need to come up with and execute the idea. I challenge you to tell me something fast and easy that "he" can do--or that I can do and once or twice hold his hands by it to say that he helped.


Thanks for any creative people who can help me. Last year we made it into a football player and the year before we covered it in fall leaves.

by the way....this bad boy is 24 inches tall! I pity the fool that runs into this turkey in a dark alley.

That is one big project! Can you help him glue on some small plastic ornaments and tinsel and call it a Christmas tree? Ornaments would cover a lot of space so it wouldn't take long. As a teacher I have sent these types of things home. As a parent...I HATE THEM!

Oh good grief! I've never understood why that project is assigned as homework. I've done it some years--it is cute--but the students do it in class.

Anyway, color or cover it all in pink, add cat ears and whiskers and a long pink tail, and it can be the Pink Panther.

My friend who teaches 2nd did this the year before last and she had one student cover hers with teddy grahams and that was its disguise--he was a teddy graham! That's the one I remember most. Plus, it's fast, easy and you can eat the leftovers!

huh?! it's 3-D???? what the heck IS it? (or is it a big sheet of paper?)

*i do this project too with my science class when we cover adaptations (camouflage)--sometimes it's groundhog, ghost, bunny, turkey---depends on season when we do it, but it's just a regular size paper.


so i'm going with it's a doll-type thing....dress it in overalls and plaid shirt and call him a farmer.
make him a jack-o-lantern or pumpkin
cover it in pink, put on a pig nose and curly tail---he could hold a sign that reads "eat more pork"

  • Make it a cow-- from Chick-fil-a! Put black spots all over it with felt.
  • make it look like an american flag, to make it extra cute use star stickers.
  • make it an ornament. Let DS help you to put on reindeer stickers or something, then make it hang from a string
  • make Mickey or Minnie Mouse!
  • make it a lady bug
Just a few suggestions

I'm not quite sure if this is allowed but can you have him paint it white and then it can be a ghost?

Thanks for all the ideas, everyone.

"We" painted it like superman....printed an "S" for his chest from the internet and called it a day.


He actually did a little of it--I squirted the red paint and held his hand on the brush and he smooshed it around a little.

Here is a link. http://www.proteacher.net/discussion...ghlight=turkey Last year was our first year doing it, and we had so many compliments on the project from parents.

I'm sure year after year, it's not so much fun though.

I am the owner of a 24 inch paper turkey cutout. We are supposed to "disguise" it so it won't be eaten for Thanksgiving.

We could put a Brett Favre jersey on it. Or a pile of leaves. Or a tutu to make it look like a ballerina.

It's a "family project".
