Family Turkey Project

As Thanksgiving approaches, everything at Taft's school is changing.  Lots of fall of turkey themed decorations are going up.  And it is time for for the Family Turkey Project again.
Taft didn't have this lovely project last year but we did do it the year before.  You can read about that here.  The idea is for the children and parents to decorate and disguise the turkey so he makes it through Thanksgiving without being eaten.  A little morbid maybe, but cute all the same. 
The last time we used mostly paper and crayons, but Taft is older this go around so we broke the paint.
 Taft was was able to do the painting with very little help from me.  After getting the little bird painted, we had to let him dry for a few hours.  We went to Michael's to get some supplies and try to figure out what to do with it this year.  We had decided to use blue feathers and make him Blue from Rio.  After we got home, the idea started to fall about.  Taft decided that the turkey is a girl and he wanted her to be a princess.  I was not prepared for princess attire.  We decided to use the blue feather and put in a few orange and white.  He had a lot of fun gluing them on.
He said that it was not the princess that he wanted so I told him I would make her a diamond necklace and that made him happy.  After gluing on the eyes and a little mouth, "she" was ready to go to school.  I added a back to the project this year to help hold the feathers on and to make a little not about what Taft said she is.  She is a Florida Football Princess.  Or course she could also pass for an auburn fan.
