My son's 6th grade class is having a Best Dressed/Disguise a Turkey contest* for Thanksgiving. He brought home a plain turkey and was instructed to dress it however he wanted. The only stipulation was that he couldn't just color him in. He actually had to cut out/color or construct an outfit for him.
After much consideration, my son decided to color him green and dress him up as Oscar the Grouch. (He felt much more confident in his ability to draw trash cans than turkey-shaped clothing.)
I think it turned out great!
* this turkey came in 3rd place overall, for the entire 6th grade!
