Popcorn Filled Paper Turkey Leg Place Settings for Thanksgiving

I like things filled with surprises. Except for diapers; those can stay empty and clean thank-you-very-much. These paper turkey legs should be filled with popcorn and nips. And chocolate. Maybe a gift card to Game Stop. YET, I am going to be totally selfless and make them more family friendly for the sake of Thanksgiving. Gotta give back to the little people.

 

I found this cute paper turkey on One Charming PArty (I succumbed….the cuteness) and decided I wanted to make them smaller and modify to make just a turkey leg.

 

It’s time to begin planning your Thanksgiving menu and one of the last things you want to worry about is the kids’ table. It’s tough enough considering the decorations, courses, guest accommodations, and plate ware for the adult table. To keep the kids entertained, have them construct paper turkey legs filled with flavored popcorn and fun little trinkets for place settings.

 

Children can then find their seats and enjoy opening up the paper favors to see their surprise. 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.

 

Here’s What You Need for Popcorn Filled Paper Turkey Legs:

– Freshly popped popcorn (I prefer to air pop using Kernel Season’sâ„¢ Premium Popping Corn)

– Kernel Season’sâ„¢ Popcorn Seasonings (choose your favorite flavors)

Letter stickers

Paper lunch bags

White scrapbooking paper

– Glue stick

– Scissors

– Optional: Thanksgiving trinkets and candy

 

Pop popcorn according to instructions on packaging. Use Kernel Season’s popcorn seasoning to add some flavor. There’s Buffalo Wing, Garlic Parmesan, Milk Chocolate Caramel, Kettle Corn, Nacho Cheddar, White Cheddar, Bacon Cheddar, Caramel, Cheesy Jalapeno, Butter and Ranch ermahgerd!

 

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.

My plan is to run around the streets on Thanksgiving, throwing these little turkey legs at people. Or, just sitting at home on my couch and eating them all by myself. Either way.

    *If using buttered popcorn to fill the turkey, use parchment or wax paper to line the paper bag to avoid grease marks.
