Thanksgiving Favors For Kids: How To Make Paper Bag Turkey Legs
Paper turkey leg place settings are a fun way to spruce up the Thanksgiving table and keep little ones busy. To keep the kids entertained, have them construct paper turkey legs filled with flavored popcorn and fun little trinkets to be used as place settings. Children can then find their seats and enjoy opening up the paper favors to see their surprise inside. The popcorn is a light appetizer to hold them over until mealtime and the toys will keep them happily occupied. No need to limit these place settings to just the kiddie table, feel free to make adult versions as well.
Paper Turkey Leg Place Setting Supplies:
Freshly popped popcorn
Kernel Season’s™ Popcorn Seasonings
Paper lunch bags
White scrapbooking paper
Optional: Thanksgiving trinkets and/or candy
Pop popcorn according to instructions on packaging. Use Kernel Season’s popcorn seasoning to add some flavor. Cut a paper lunch bag and fill with the popcorn. As an option you can also fill with little toys and candies. Make certain that they are non-toxic as they will be mixed in with the popcorn.
Cut a bone shape out of white scrapbooking paper. Use glue to adhere opening of bag to paper bone. Allow to dry, then use sticker letters to spell out each guest’s name. Place paper turkey on each plate as a place setting.
These Thanksgiving favors for kids are a cinch to make and such a festive addition to Thanksgiving dinner table. Enjoy!
