DIY Thanksgiving Party Favors: 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.

Optional Favor Ideas
First gather your goodies that you want to stuff into the party favors for thanksgiving. Popcorn is perfect or you can stuff these favors with chocolates, candy corn, caramel apples, lottery tickets, or whatever favor ideas you think your thanksgiving guests will enjoy. More great party favors to consider for stuffing the turkey legs are homemade apple butter jars, personalized Thanksgiving ornaments, turkey-shaped cookie favors, Thanksgiving-themed scented candles, and Thanksgiving-themed seed packets. These could all make great party favors.
How To Make Thanksgiving Favors- a Stuffed Paper Bag Turkey Leg Craft
Pop popcorn according to instructions on packaging. Use Kernel Season’s popcorn seasoning to add some flavor.
Cut the tops off the paper lunch bags leaving the bags shorter, around 6-8 inches tall. This makes them easier to fill and keeps the drumstick shape a littler better.
Now, fill the paper bag with the popcorn or some of the other favors I mentioned. If you decide to mix the popcorn with anything else, I suggest putting the trinkets, stickers, or candies in a separate zippered plastic bag within the paper bag for safety reasons.
Cut a bone shape out of white scrapbooking paper. Use a thin layer of glue stick to adhere the opening of bag to paper bone. Allow to dry, then use sticker letters to spell out each guest’s name. Place paper turkey leg on each plate as a place setting. Or keep them to give out at the door before your Thanksgiving guests go home. These Thanksgiving goodie bags couldn’t be more cute!
These Thanksgiving favors are a cinch to make and such a festive addition to Thanksgiving dinner table. Enjoy!
