Don’t you just love fun school projects that you get to help your child with? We had a fun school project to complete that was Thanksgiving-themed. Our mission was to disguise a turkey. Disguise a turkey you say? But why? The turkey is trying to avoid being dinner on Thanksgiving day!
This was a neat little kindergarten project and her dad and I was happy to help. We had a lot of ideas to disguise her turkey. It was kind of hard for her to decide what she wanted to disguise him as. She wanted to make sure the turkey was disguised really well!
