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!
