Brandon came home the other with his first school art project! I was very excited about it and was looking forward to doing this with him. I thought this would be a great project to share with you guys since it’s simple and explores your creative side. The key to this project is to first plan your disguise and then start building your design by using household items. Brandon and I decided to disguise his Turkey inside of his school Crayola Crayon box. It seemed like the perfect idea for our project. Brandon enjoyed the cutting and pasting aspect of this project, but he did get a little distracted, so I decided to finish up the project myself. Looking back I would have done a few things differently, but overall this project came out nicely. If you want to replicate this specific disguise, I have listed a the art supplies we used below 🙂 Other wise, have fun and be creative!
