Thanksgiving Craft with Hefty® Slider Bags.

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
  • chalk

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
  • Eyes
  • Sequins
  • Pom-poms
  • Glitter
  • Glue

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!
