How to Dress Your Turkey

An early memory I have of Thanksgiving is my Grandpa teaching me how to dress our Thanksgiving turkey.  If you knew my Grandpa, you know this involves no stuffing (or “dressing”).  Instead, it uses four, maybe five things – 2 pieces of paper, 1 pair of scissors, a stapler, and a pen.  Check out the pictures below to see how you can do this at home (with or without kids!).

Step 1 – Take two pieces of 8.5×11 paper and fold in half.

Step 2 – Fold the non-creased long edge about a 1/4 way in.

Step 3 – Starting at the folded edge, make (roughly)1/4 inch cuts to the crease you made in Step 2.

Step 4 – Roll the cut paper to a little larger than a quarter diameter, and hold in place with your fingers.

Step 5 – Staple once, at seam, to hold in place.

Step 6 – Place on turkey legs, right before Turkey is ready to be served.
