You turkey! Bluffton fourth graders keep a Thanksgiving tradition alive

When you were a Bluffton fourth grader, did you create a turkey to hang on the elementary wall in anticipation of Thanksgiving?

Or did your children create this Thanksgiving masterpiece? Is it still in a box in your attic?

The tradition never ends. The assignment is simple: Create a turkey using anything you wish.

The turkeys come in a variety of designs, as you’ll see here. We’ve chosen eight turkeys for this year’s Thanksgiving feast.

Enjoy.
