Turkey Thanksgiving Snack Bags

These Turkey Thanksgiving Snack Bags are perfect for school parties, play dates, and long holiday road trips!  Do you travel for Thanksgiving or do you stay local?  We are heading up North back to MN this year and I thought these cute treats would be fun to surprise the boys with along the way.

For Michael’s Halloween party we filled the gloves with just popcorn as “Spooky Hands” complete with a spider ring on the ring finger.  One was laying the table in a way that resembled the shape of a turkey and I thought “duh!”  How many cute turkey crafts have you seen where you use your child’s hand as a turkey!  I knew I could make them in snack form also!  The colored goldfish were just the ticket!

Supplies Needed:

  • Clear Plastic Gloves
  • Popcorn
  • Colored Goldfish Crackers
  • Red & Orange Felt (optional)
  • Googly eyes (optional)

I just popped one of our favorite 100 calorie snack popcorn bags and when it was cool, I got to work on the turkey snack bags!  I filled the four fingers with the colored gold fish.  You could also separate colors but I didn’t have time for that!  LOL!  After that fill the palm and the thumb with popcorn!  Tie the glove at the bottom!  Voila!

I apparently did have enough time to cut a beak and gaggle out of some felt and glue them on along with a googly eye.  In my house EVERYTHING is better with googly eyes :).

  1. I know this is a ridiculous question… but where did you buy the gloves? I couldn’t find them at my grocery store. They only had powdered gloves.

  2. OMG I’m so glad I saw this! We will be flying to AZ for Thanksgiving with our 2 year old daughter and this would definitely keep her occupied for a while.

  3. Hi, I am wanting to take this for my sons preschool snack but I can’t find the plastic gloves anywhere…any chance you could share where you found them? Thanks!!

  4. I made the Halloween hands YEARS ago – but leave it to you to see a turkey. Great idea. Love seeing new stuff and thanks to you – another wonderful, quick, easy, inexpensive treat to impress the kids. Thanks so much for posting.

  5. I tried making these and the kids loved them, but… I can’t get the googly eye to stay on the glove. As soon as it dries it doesn’t take much for it to peel off :( I used Elmer’s glue, what worked with yours?

  6. […] Tacchino porta merenda: Una facilissima idea che divertirà i più piccoli nel preparativo della merenda per il giorno del Ringraziamento: facciamo riempire dai ragazzi, con caramelle di piccole dimensioni, possibilmente dei colori dell’autunno, tutte le dita di un guanto di lattice tranne il pollice: riempite le dita, ora procediamo riempiendo sino all’orlo e includendo anche il pollice tutto il resto del guanto usando popcorn fatti in casa. Annodiamo il guanto e concludiamo disegnando sul pollice due occhietti e incollandovi un triangolino di carta arancione come becco. […]
