Where's the turkey?

Have you ever had to disguise a turkey?  Me neither.  Until now.

My 8 year old grandson's homework was to take a drawing of a turkey, cut it out, and disguise it so that it fits in with your family and won't be killed and eaten. 

Do what???  Where do these teachers get these ideas from?   I don't know.

So, out come the Better Homes and Gardens magazines.  Good thing I can't throw anything away:)  It took going through every magazine I owned to find ideas and scraps for the project.  Actually, Mason enjoyed it too much.  I steady heard, Hey Grann, we can use these feet, or these socks, or this cat with his legs crossed like he's gotta go pee.  But I can't use this naked lady (the longerie model) cause the teacher will get mad.

Here is what we ended up with.

Can you see the turkey? 

He has a cowboy hat, sunglasses, and a football necklace.

He has 2 mismatched socks, 2 mismatched boots, and a purse big enough to be a suitcase.

But he doesn't look like a turkey anymore!

I thought it turned out pretty good.  Mason is proud of it too.

Mason decided to call him Aunt Connie.  That would be my sister who is coming to visit for Thanksgiving.  I wonder what she'll think about that!

I'll say it again.  Have you ever had to disguise a turkey?  And if so, how did you do it?  I would sure like to hear about it.

Have a great day.


  1. Lol, that was what I thought the first time my kids had to do it-but they're "master's of disguise" by now, lol! One went as a cupcake, one hid in a trash can with only eyeballs peeking out, and another went as a bunny...

    1. And here I thought we did good! Those are great ideas. Wish I had thought them, the trash can one especially. I like that.
