DIY Turkey Goodie Bags and Holiday Kid's Crafts

Hello, it's me. Hello, can you hear me? Hello from the other side.
I must of thought of posting a thousand times.

 If you don't get that reference above well then we simply can't be friends anymore.
As far as for the rest of you, hi, pals! I'm back! Hard to believe it's been quite a few weeks since my last post but man has this month been rough. We just got back from the Virgin Islands where I was forced to sleep in, spend long hours in the sun with a cocktail in hand, and swim in the crystal blue ocean. PURE TORTURE, I tell you. But enough about that, let's talk about this simple Thanksgiving project Little B and I created a few weeks ago.

I have a stash of white glassine bags hiding out in my craft room collecting dust and I thought it would be fun to create some cute Thanksgiving goodie bags; you know something to keep the kids entertained while they're waiting for dinner or to keep them out of our hair while the adults are STILL trying to enjoy their meal (we have a 2, 3, and 6 year old at our holiday gatherings).

I call these "Fowl Play" goodie bags. Haha, get it? Oh, I crack myself up.
I know the word "blissful" isn't exactly what comes to mind when attempting to craft with a two year old, which is why I try to keep our collaborative projects quick and simple. These goodies bags met both of those goals. 

At this age, I find it's best to just let tots go to town when it comes to painting. Thankfully, the watercolor trend is still going strong these days because that's exactly what Little B's "artwork" reminded me of.
Then I finished up the bags with the turkeys that I cut out using my Silhouette Machine.
The bows were left over from my no-sew bunny ear gift bags.  
Then just fill the bags up with little treasures and trinkets ( play-doh, bouncy balls, Matchbox cars, etc...)

Love to see more holiday kid's crafts?!
I'm super excited to share the fun, holiday series I'm a part of over on Instagram
