Thanksgiving is only about a month away and while I am still figuring out our Thanksgiving plans, I haven't forgotten one of my favorite aspects of the holidays which is CREATING! Creating for the holidays is one of my most favorite things to do ever. Ever. And so today, I am really excited to share this fun and simple Thanksgiving turkey-themed craft. And this is the perfect craft for your kids to help with too! These Handprint Turkey Treat Bags are so easy to make and would be the perfect gift to drop off at a friend or neighbor's house this fall season. Keep reading to see how to create these and have a little fun creating this Thanksgiving season.
Handprint Turkey Treat Bags
- Cellophane Bags, 5" x 11.25", Clear
- Core'dinations Smooth World Tour Cardstock, 12" x 12", Classic
- Wiggle Eyes (I used 2 wiggle eyes approximately ¾" diameter.)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Tape (optional)
- Treats to fill bag with (I used Reeses Pieces.)
You will begin by filling your cello bag just under half way full with treats. Then you will secure the bag closed with tape or a hot glue gun.
Using a variety of colors of cardstock, trace your children's (or your own) hands and cut them out.
Lay the hands out in a fan shape and tape them together (hot glue will work also) and then attach them to the back of the filled cello bag.
Cut out an orange beak and a red wattle and attach them and two wiggle eyes to the front of the filled cello bag.
Aren't they so cute! I love the little hands for feathers and I can't wait to give this to a close friend for Thanksgiving. I just know their family will love it!
