Create Your Own Turkey Snack Bags
Turkey Snack Bags with pumpkin spice cereal snack
Perfect for a party favor or as a table decoration, these adorable turkey snack bags are a fun way to serve Thanksgiving snacks. We've filled them with our Pumpkin Spice Cereal Snack. This activity is both a great recipe and a craft to do with kids.  Get the family together or host a children's party this fall - and let kids get creative! They will love making this delicious snack - with pumpkin spices, chocolate chips and peanut butter.  Make the bags separately and them fill them with the snack. 

When finishing the bags, you can even add fun pictures to the bag with marker to make each bag unique. Take these to your neighbors as a "Thankful For You" gift around Thanksgiving time, or give them to teachers as a "Thank You For All You Do." 
These mini paper bags can be found at your local craft store in the packaging section.
