For this thanksgiving feast why not entertain your little ones with great turkey snacks that you know they will enjoy. These are some of the coolest turkey DIY’S for the kids and maybe even the whole family. Ladies I dare you to take it up a set higher this Thanksgiving Holiday with these cool DIY’S Ideas from some of my favorite blogs.



Whether you make this for Thanksgiving dinner at home or for a school classroom party, every kids’ table needs a paper bag turkey. And this one has a surprise inside. Been wondering how to make it? We’re going to show you.

paper bag popcorn turkey tutorial

You will need: 3-4 bags of popcorn, a large brown grocery bag, 2 small brown lunch bags, a hot glue gun, scissors, white paper for the frills


1. For the frill, take a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11″ white paper and cut it in half lengthwise. Fold the paper in half lengthwise and make small cuts with a pair of scissors on the folded half to create loops.

2. For the drumsticks, make one hand into a fist and stick it inside the lunch bag. With your other flat hand, press on the bag to mold and smash it down into a more rounded shape. Fill the bag 2/3 of the way with popcorn. Gather up the bottom of the bag and twist to keep it tight. Hot glue the beginning of the length of frill and wrap it around the bottom, twisted part of the lunch bag. Then hot glue the end of the white paper frill to keep it in place.

3. For the main bag, do the same thing as the drumstick to make the corners rounded. Fill the bag up full with popcorn. Fold the sides of the bag in and tuck the bottom edge under. Hot glue the edge shut. Hot glue the legs onto the sides of the “turkey.” It’s best to use a plain brown bag, but if you can only find one with writing on the outside, you can carefully turn the bag inside out and it will be just fine. Easy Peasy.

*If using buttered popcorn to fill the turkey, use parchment or wax paper to line the paper bag to avoid grease marks.

We used fresh parsley as a garnish on the platter, underneath the turkey.

Invite an adult guest of honor to “carve” the turkey with a real knife. Then everyone can enjoy some popcorn while they wait for the rest of the meal.

A cupcake to pie for. These cute little pumpkin pie toppers really do taste like pumpkin pie!  I cut slices out of the Jet Puffed Spice mallows (use a wet knife) and then softened caramel in the microwave for the crust and shaped it around the marshmallow. I topped it off with a vanilla mallow bit and ta-da! A mini pumpkin pie.

Make hot cocoa even more fun with these chocolate spoons. Melt chocolate and dip the spoons in.  Add a chocolate candy  melt for the head (I used mint flavored) and decorate with candy eyes and sprinkles.  For the feathers, cut small marshmallows on the diagonal and dip them into colored sprinkles.
