Your children will have fun designing a turkey disguise for the turkey on the template in this printable set. I chose to make my turkey a unicorn. Your children will have fun using a STEAM planning document and our list of ideas to come up with their own turkey disguise. It totally doesn’t have to be a unicorn.
Turkey Disguise Project
Downloading the Project Pages
You will need to download a copy of the STEAM Turkey Disguise Project. It includes the disguise planning document, the turkey template, and a disguise idea chart. All of the pages in the set were designed to be printed on a black and white printer.
Gathering Decorating Supplies
Here are some supplies you will want to put out for your disguise designers:
- Fabric Scraps
- Construction Paper or Colored Cardstock
- Bits of Nature Gathered from Outdoors (Twigs or Leaves)
Planning The Disguise
Before your children create their disguise, they will need to plan it. I worked on the unicorn design several times before I ever picked up a pair of scissors. The planning document in the set has a large space to draw a costume or disguise on.
Creating the Disguise
Your children may create a costume that covers some of all of the turkey. It is up to you or them to decide how much of the turkey they want to cover. You can also decide just what supplies you want them to use.
If your children decide not to cover all of their turkey, they will need to color the parts of the turkey that will be showing.
When they are ready, they can start constructing the turkey’s disguise.
How I Made the Unicorn
The unicorn I created was made of three pieces of white cardstock. It has head, horn and body section. Once they were cut out, each piece was outlined with a gold or silver marker.
The head was made big so it would cover the turkey’s head and some of its feathers. The nostrils of the unicorn are the eyeholes for the turkey. I wanted his eyes to show through from the back.
The mane and the tail were created using a variety of curled ribbon. The ribbon was glued to the back of the unicorn.
After coloring the turkey, I dressed him in his disguise. Your children don’t have to color the turkey of they don’t want to.
