Thanksgiving Dinnerwear & Kids Friendly Appetizer

Want an unstuffy Thanksgiving? This headgear is sure to get your group giggling. Be sure to check out these ideas for a fun-filled Kids' Thanksgiving.

What you'll need

  • Paper grocery bag
  • Paper lunch bags
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Scrap paper
  • White paper napkins
  • Stapler

How to make it

  1. For the headband of each hat, cut a 25- by 5-inch strip from a paper grocery bag and fold it in thirds lengthwise. Wrap it around your child's head, overlap the ends by 2 inches, trim, and use tape to close the band.
  2. To make each turkey leg, trim down a paper lunch bag so it stands 7 inches tall. Smooth the bag around your fist to shape it, then stuff it half full with balled-up scrap paper.
  3. To make each bone, unfold two white paper napkins and crumple one napkin into a ball. Drape the second napkin over the ball and twist it to form the narrow part of the bone. Insert this end into the stuffed bag. Twist and tape the two parts to secure them.
  4. Staple the legs to the headband and use tape to cover the staple ends inside the band.
