I love Thanksgiving. All the family, all the food, how can you go wrong?! Kids don’t always have the patience to sit through a long meal. Sometimes they need a little extra entertainment and activities. These little Thanksgiving turkey activity bags are a fun and easy activity to entertain the kids. You can also use play doh or pom pom balls to build a turkey. I used what I had which was paper and they turned out so cute! These are also a fun nonfood Thanksgiving thing to give out to friends. The bags are easy to put together and easy for kids of different ages to make. My daughter is 5 and she had a blast with this activity.
What you need to make them:
sandwich size plastic bags(cut off the top zipper part if using these bags) or small cellophane bags
2 circles of brown paper, one about 3 inches and one about 2 inches
plastic googly eyes
one small triangle of orange paper or 2 of tissue paper for the nose
feathers or feather shaped tissue paper in orange and red
printable build a turkey label
popsicle stick or half of a paper straw
Put all of the turkey making materials in a small cellophane or ziplock bag. Print out the labels and cut them out. Fold label over the top of the bag and staple on both sides.
Cute and easy just the way I like it! You can get creative with what materials to use to make your turkeys. My daughter also made a fun one with pink feathers and feet. Then the kids can play with them as puppets.
