The project: Decorate Tom Turkey using household items like glitter, crayons, paint, macaroni, etc.
The supplies: feathers, googly eyes, (both purchased at Michaels), beans (purchased at supermarket - interestingly enough, dry beans are not found in the aisle labeled "beans", but in the aisle with the rice. Weird.)
The process: glue various items onto turkey and hope for the best
Not a bad turkey, huh? Guess this is the just the first in a long stream of projects that mom and dad will be rushing to finish the night before it's due!

TOTAL PROJECT COSTS
Beans: $1.49 per bag. I purchased WAY too many beans. Three bags would have been sufficient. If you want to do all one color, you'll probably only need one bag.
Feathers: $1.99 per bag. I wanted a variety of colors so I purchased a four bags in total.
Googly Eyes: I already had these on hand from a project I did at Halloween. I think they may have been $3.99 for a pack of 50 eyes.
Total Cost: $12.43
Total Time: about 2 hours
