Effortless and Time-Saving
No need to hunt for myriad supplies or spend hours brainstorming. With the popcorn disguise, all you need is some popcorn and red and white striped paper. Or, you can choose the easy printable pack below and just some scissors and glue. Easy peasy!
Super Engaging for Kids
Which kid doesn’t love popcorn? The relatability of the theme means they’ll be excited to jump in and help, making it a fun-filled family activity.
Unique & Memorable
While other turkeys might come disguised as superheroes or animals, your popcorn turkey will stand out, making it a memorable project that teachers and classmates will talk about.
The project doesn’t just serve the purpose of the disguise. It also helps in improving your child’s fine motor skills as they cut, paste, and design their popcorn turkey.
It’s an Instagram-worthy project! Share your child’s creation on social media, and watch the compliments roll in.
Quality Time Together
Take this as an opportunity to bond with your child. Discuss the funniest places the turkey could hide or the silliest disguises it could wear. It’s a great way to fuel their imagination.
