My first grader brought home a school project this week. The instructions were to come up with a turkey disguise to keep her turkey from becoming the Thanksgiving meal. She had a ton of ideas on how to disguise her feathered friend and was a little bummed when I told her that she had to pick just one.
Eventually, she decided to disguise her turkey as Elsa from the movie Frozen. She glued blue glitter paper and fake snowflakes all over that bird and was quite pleased with how it turned out! But, just in case your little one has trouble coming up with ideas, I’ve put together a list of 55 turkey disguises that would fool any Thanksgiving chef!
