A letter was attached explaining what needed to be done. "As a family, disguise Tom Turkey so that he won’t be eaten for Thanksgiving. You may choose to dress your turkey as a doctor, astronaut, farmer, cheerleader, ballerina, etc. Be creative and use any materials you have at home. Everyone gets to help.
Cut out the turkey and mount him on cardboard or heavy paper and start dressing your turkey."
I remember reading this letter when they sent it home but forgot to read it again before we started. The only reason why I read it again was because I wanted to show you the instructions. Of course by then, the project was completed. Oh well. Last night we had our plan in mind. My son and I ran to the drugstore and grabbed a bag of cotton balls. (We only had the cotton pads here at home... and q-tips. Yeah, I don't think so.) Tonight after he finished his spelling homework and dinner we got down to business cutting, tracing, and hot gluing our little disguise together. Ta-da!!
Ok... so we went with another food choice but hopefully that’s ok. I don't know anyone that eats sheep... lamb, mutton ... on Thanksgiving. Do you? For some reason my silly husband prefers to have ham. HUH?! What's wrong with him? I mean, it's Thanksgiving! Therefore the meal of the day is turkey! Anyway, I'm sure there are people that eat lamb so I added a sign that reads, "Have you considered becoming vegetarian?"
Not much on the details: it was all hand cut with scraps I had.
Hope your Tuesday was terrific!
