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 legsÂ shouldÂ 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.
Itâ€™s time to begin planning your Thanksgiving menu and one of the last things you want to worryÂ about is the kidsâ€™ table. Itâ€™s tough enough considering the decorations, courses, guestÂ accommodations, andÂ plate wareÂ for the adult table. To keep the kids entertained, have them construct paper turkey legs filled with flavored popcornÂ and fun little trinkets for place settings.
Children can then find their seats and enjoy opening upÂ the paper favors to see their surprise. The popcorn is a light appetizer to hold them over untilÂ mealtime and the toys will keep them happily occupied. No need to limit these place settings toÂ 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 Seasonâ€™sâ„¢ Premium Popping Corn)
– Kernel Seasonâ€™sâ„¢ Popcorn Seasonings (choose your favorite flavors)
– Glue stick
– Optional: Thanksgiving trinkets and candy
Pop popcorn according to instructions on packaging.Â Use Kernel Seasonâ€™s popcorn seasoning toÂ 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 asÂ they will be mixed in with the popcorn.
Place paper turkey on each plate as a place setting. These turkey paper legs are a cinch to make and such a festive addition to Thanksgiving dinner.
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.
