This week we read The Turkey Ball, by David Steinberg. This is a cute rhyming story about a group of turkeys who spend the night dancing.

As we were reading this book I thought it would be fun for Emily to dress up a turkey for the ball. I tried to find a cute picture of a turkey on the internet, however non of them seemed to work for what I had in mind. Then I saw a picture of a toilet paper tube turkey and new we had to try it out!

Emily painted the toilet paper towel tube with brown paint.

Next, she glued on the face and some wiggly eyes.

Then, she glued on some feathers. This was her favorite part!

Finally, she decorated the turkey for the ball with some sequins and glitter glue.
