Turkey Leg~ Fun and Easy Thanksgiving Craft

Looking for a fun, healthy, thrifty snack to tide the kids over on Thanksgiving while they wait for the big feast?  Look no further!  Let them feast on these “vegetarian” turkey legs while they wait!

You will need:

Brown paper lunch bags

1 sheet of white printer paper (per turkey leg)

glue, tape or hot glue

popcorn

scissors

Pop your popcorn and let it cool so you can touch it.  Put a couple of cups (I didn’t measure an exact amount) inside your brown paper lunch bag.  After you have filled it, form the bag so it is rounded, like a turkey leg, not squared like a lunch bag.  and cut off about 2 inches off the opening.

Now holding your paper so it is tall, not wide, cut 7 inches off and roll that.  Mine was between 1 1/2-2 inches thick.  Glue along the seam.

With the remainder of your paper, you will want to cut 2 1/2 inches off.  Same direction as your 7 inches.  This will need to be the same width as the other tube you cut, as it will be fitting on the end of it.  Roll it, glue the seam, and then cut strips about an inch down.  You will have about 3 layers of your tube, Just cut all 3 layers at once.  Glue this to the end of the other tube.

Take a pencil and begin to roll these little strips outwards like this.

Stick the other end of your “bone” into the paper bag.  You can now use a small amount of glue to seal it.  I did it holding the bag upside down and gluing as close to the edge as I could to keep the food and the glue from touching.  I don’t know if it matters with hot glue, but I didn’t want to take any chances.

Hold it there and let it dry for a minute.  That is it!  You are done!

Easy turkey craft for kids

I love Thanksgiving! What a great day. Full of family, food, friends, food, feeling thankful, and did I mention food? Right at the center of the table is the star of the show if you will. The turkey. So this year while your turkey gets roasted in the oven, here is a cute little turkey craft you can throw together with the kids. You probably have everything you need in your kitchen!

You will need:

small paper plate

cupcake liner

markers

tape or glue

Have your child glue or tape the cupcake liner to the back of the paper plate. If you are using glue, you may want to let it dry for a few minutes.

Add a face and legs to your turkey. Once you have drawn the face, give him some pretty feathers. I love letting the kids be creative with how they draw these. Whether they want to just color different colored feathers or patterns. Whatever! It is fun and gives them something to do while they wait for the yummy dinner.

Ice Cream Cone Cornucopia Snacks~Thanksgiving Snacks

Here is another quick, yet adorable snack to add to the kids table at your Thanksgiving feast!  How about  making them this week when the kids get out of school to celebrate the Holiday weekend?  I know my kids loved them!

You will need:

Sugar ice cream cones

Straw

Cup of warm water

Microwave

Filler for your cornucopias (we used trail mix)

Plastic wrap to cover

Ribbon, twine, or something to wrap around the plastic to keep it closed

ice cream cone cornucopia snacks, #icecreamcone, #cornucopia,#fall, #cornucopiasnacks, #thanksgiving,#trailmix, #thanksgivingsnacks, #diy, #thriftysnacks

Begin by getting a small cup of warm water.  Take your straw, dip it in the water, and hold the end to trap some warm water inside the straw.  Dump that into the inside of your sugar cone.  While that softens it up from the inside, dip the outside bottom 1- 1 1/2 inches into the warm water.  Hold there for 20 seconds.  Place in the microwave for 20 seconds.  When it is done, promptly remove it and gently curl it around your straw.  Hold there for several seconds before sliding the straw gently out of the curve.

Let the cones set for a few minutes to give it time to harden up a little.  Fill it up with something yummy.  We used trail mix from the bulk section at Winco.

Rip off a small amount of  plastic wrap and gently wrap it around the opening and tie it off with some ribbon, twine, or something cute to keep it shut.

Free Fall printables

Free Fall printables

Two styles of Free Fall printables for you to print out and celebrate the season.

Free Fall printables Free Fall printablesgive thanks

happy fall

I love a good, free printable. They are an inexpensive way to decorate and celebrate different seasons and holidays. Fall is my favorite season and when I found these gorgeous floral freebies over at Free Pretty Things For You, I knew I had to use them for something. She has so many freebies, clip arts, fonts, all the things you could want for creating beautiful printables, digital scrapbooking, you name it. You really should go take a look and show her some love!

I created the PDF in my Silhouette America software and just used a free program to save it as a PDF. It was so simple. If you want to print these off, that is simple too. Just click on the hyperlinked text of the one you want right above this paragraph (that is the text in blue right above here). That will save it to your computer and you can either print it at home or send it to your favorite printer. These are 8×10 size, but you can just print them on a regular sheet of paper and trim it.
