It’s almost Turkey time!! Thanksgiving is a day that I like to remember what I am grateful and thankful for every year and spend time with my family and friends. I know Thanksgiving can be a controversial event and honestly, I agree but will not get into that right now. As our kids get older our Thanksgiving celebrations are truly for recognition of all of the blessings we have.
For pretty much every other holiday, the kids like to take little treats to their friends at school. This year, I started thinking ahead. What treat would be fun but easy for the kids to hand out.
These little treat bags are so cute and really easy to recreate. I even made a free printable that you can use when you make your own.
Turkey Treat Bags
1. To make one turkey treat bag, cut each piece of tissue paper in half.
2. Lay the yellow piece of tissue paper out flat and place a handful of candy in the middle of the paper.
3. Bring the corners of the yellow tissue paper together and twist the ends together.
4. Lay an orange and red piece of tissue paper out flat, place the yellow tissue paper bundle in the middle of the tissue paper and bring the ends of the paper together, once again twisting the ends and creating a bundle.
5. Using a piece of twine or string, tie the bundle securely. Add the printable tag to the twine while doing this.
6. Glue 2 googly eyes to the bundle.
7. Cut beaks out of the yellow card stock and glue one beak to each turkey bundle.
8. Fluff the tissue paper out to look like turkey feathers. Hand out to classmates!
These turned out so cute and my kids are so excited to help me make enough for all of their friends before Thanksgiving Break. I went with a fall candy for this project but you could add any type of candy or treat to these cute little treat bags.
Do your kids plan on handing out any Thanksgiving or Fall treats to their classmates this year?
