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 these turkey snack bags 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 for Turkey Snack Bags:

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 :).

    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.

    LOVE these! Any idea for a popcorn replacement? My oldest has braces and can’t do popcorn. Thanks for the idea!!

      Victoria, they make “puff corn” It tastes just like popcorn but no kernals or shells…kind of like cheeze puffs but popcorn flavored and colored! Maybe try that!

    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.

    Did you use regular Elmer’s glue? For the googly eyes & beak? Thanks

  • Diana

    Did you glue the googly eyes and beak before or after filling them?

    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.

    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?

    • Cheryl Spangenberg
      November 16, 2015

      Yes! We made these this weekend and we used Elmer’s! Just be sure to let them dry well!

        Where do you get the clear plastic gloves? Is that a Target thing?

    Great, easy craft idea for after school care, kids ranging from pre-school to fifth grade. For all those asking about the gloves, they are used for food service and you can also buy them at Costco or Sam’s Club.

    Thank you for the fabulous idea! I used it for my preschoolers and posted about it on my preschool blog. I made sure to link the idea back to you. Feel free to check it out if you want.

    How do you secure the bag at the bottom? It looks like it is tied but when I did a trial there’s not enough glove left to make a knot.

    • Cheryl Spangenberg

      Hi Jennifer! I just tied them. Maybe don’t fill the turkey’s as full so you have a bit more glove to tie.
