You just can't buy this kind of creative

Sam brought home a special project.  He had a white sheet of paper with a plain turkey on it and he was to create a disguise for it.  It came with a letter with the instructions.  It says "You can use anything to create your turkey disguise including felt, glitter, paper, cotton balls, stickers, candy and so on".  It's a contest- the rest of the teachers are going to vote for a winner. Sam was beside himself excited- so much so that he had it completed before he got home...................
THAT is a turkey hiding in a trash can.  And I am the mother that I'm certain his teacher assumes pays not a lick of attention to her child.  Although I do- and me and my crafting glue feel kind of cheated out of this fabulous project.

Good luck Sam- may the best turkey win.

One of the things I love most about kids besides their enthusiasm for life, is how they come up with ideas the rest of us never considered. That is too cute! He has my vote. With the holidays coming up, I'm sure your glue gun will have its turn soon. =)

You are the mom who has taught your children to look outside of the box. I am sure what Sam was thinking was that a turkey could not actually fit behind felt and glue, rather he would be completely covered by the trash can for much better hiding. :)
