Kanin came home Friday with a family project. We had a blank paper turkey that we were to disguise as something else and then write a letter to the all farmers letting them know that this was not a turkey but a . . .whatever we chose to disguise it as.
Kanin knew right away how he wanted to disguise his turkey. He wanted his turkey to be Jason Motte.
As in most of these "family" projects, it ends up being the parents trying to figure out how to do things. How in the world were we going to make a white paper turkey into Jason Motte?
First, I downloaded and printed out the St. Louis Cardinal logo and the STL hat. Then, I realized that I had a paper from the weekend after the World Series. I found a picture of the Championship trophy and we cut that out. Lastly, Kanin just had to draw his uniform and his face with the lucky beard.
Here's what we ended up with:
Here is the letter he wrote.
I am not a turkey. I am Jaso Motte. I saved Game 7 of the World Series for the St. Louis Cardinals. Please don't cook and eat me.
Ha! It was so cute!
