Turkey Time!

It's family turkey time!

Both of my boys brought home a turkey to decorate/dress up for Thanksgiving. Kevin's grade is giving out prizes for most creative, funniest, etc.

Kevin came up with an Elivis-themed turkey.

He had it all sketched out for me. We used my Sticles (scrapbook supply) to color in the feathers. We cut a shirt and sunglasses out of cardstock and also glittered them up. I had to draw the star and write Elvis on the shirt for him. We cut "blue suede shoes" out of fabric and I stitched laces on them for him. The guitar was a sticker. Oh, and we added a gold ribbon "scarf." The cardstock hair and sideburns looked a little bland, so I cut a piece of Blake's Halloween wig so Elvis would have some "real" hair and sideburns. :)
Good luck, Kevin!
Blake went a more predictable route - for Blake - a Boston Red Sox turkey. (I'm still not sure how Kevin came up with Elvis!)
Blake's turkey required less parental help. I help him cut out the shirt, hat, ball, glove and cleats. It's amazing what you can do with vellum - it's great for tracing over things and then using as a template!
The winner in Blake's class gets a free lunch from a local drive in. He really wants to win that prize!
"Turkey Day" is just around the corner!!! Four more days! But, only two more days of school. Yay!!!

What a fun project! Your boys are pretty creative--wonder where they got that from? ;)

My kids are counting down the days to Thanksgiving as well!
