It’s November which means it is time to start prepping for the holidays. My favorite time of year is less than three weeks away and I am already trying to decide what to bring and make. Thanksgiving is the day where we get together with my family and spend from morning to night celebrating thankfulness. It is such a joy to spend time with those that I love.
I thought this year it would be nice to have a little craft for the kids to do to keep them busy (even if it’s just for ten minutes). Thanksgiving is not complete without doing at least one turkey craft full of color.
In order to make these craft bags, I headed over to my local Walmart to purchase the supplies, including Hefty® Slider Bags. I knew that Hefty® Slider Bags would work great in ensuring me that the supplies would stay put due to the MaxLock® track design. Another benefit I found is that Hefty® Slider Bags cost less than Ziploc® Slider Bags, which is a major plus for my wallet.
Once I got all the supplies I needed, I first wanted to personalize the bags to add a special touch to the bags. I know my girls love anything that has their name on it! All I needed for making them personalized was:
- cookie cutter
- chalkboard paint
- sponge paintbrush
I held the cookie cutter on the bag, painted, and voila! A quick and easy pumpkin name tag on each of the bags for the children’s names. It took a few hours to dry before I was able to write the names on the bags.
So what is in the bag? I made a template that I used in order to cut out pieces for the turkey.
- Five colorful turkey feathers
- Turkey head and nose
This gives the children everything they need to make the turkey and decorate them any way that they would like! The Hefty® Slider Bags allow for easy storage and keeps everything contained for the children to keep track of their turkeys! This is such an easy craft to put together and I am sure any child would love to make a turkey on “turkey” day!

This is such a cute idea! I love having all the items together for each child’s craft. It makes it much easier when you will probably be busy running around cooking things all day and not have time to gather craft items.
It makes it so much easier and less stressful for everyone!
This is such an adorable idea! I might just have to do this with Max and Ella!
This is such a cute idea! We need to get some hefty bags and do this!

That is actually very clever to package the bits and pieces together like that ahead of time. So organised!

That is great to hear!!
These bags have so many uses and really do come in hand for everything. Don’t think we have hefty in Scotland, but I do use a different brand. Fab post, love the pics!
I love Hefty slider bags! That make storing things so easy! Plus they really hold in everything you put in them.
This was a great idea for keeping things organized!
Nice idea! These bags would be great as party bags to give the children to bring home and make after their party. I love the idea that they can be made up with whatever festive feast happens to be on. Example Christmas or Easter etc. Lovely creative idea!
This is seriously the cutest idea!! I use the Hefty bags for leftovers, but have never used it for crafts. I help lead kids church and this could be perfect!!!
These would be a great addition for crafting at your church!
SUPER cute idea. It is a great way to keep all the components in one spot. Thanks for sharing.
