October is a very festive month beginning with Thanksgiving and ending with Halloween. It’s a time for reflections, blessings and gatherings with friends and family. We celebrate with a feast usually with the harvested gardens or fields we had planted earlier in the year. One of the best things to do with families is to create fun decor, tables settings, and family crafts like this Paper Bag Turkey Puppet craft.

Brown Paper Bag Crafts

There are many uses for paper bags that don’t include lunches. It’s not an item we might find in our craft cupboard however this is an item you should have for so many different crafting ideas. They are inexpensive and easy to find. I would however suggest getting them at the dollar store rather than the grocery store.

Paper bags can be painted, glued and even scrunched up to make shapes during craft time. They are so versatile and easy to use with kids. Make sure to have other colourful paper to add embellishments to your creations. If you enjoy our easy paper bag turkey craft then you are sure to love these 15 Fantastic fall crafts.

Turkey Puppet Show

Puppet shows are a way for kids to express their imagination and storytelling so if you plan on making these Turkey puppets allow the kids to create a short puppet show to go along with them. Don’t have a backdrop? You can always use your Thanksgiving table display or make a puppet show stage with some sort of cardboard. Don’t want to make one then just have the kids do the show behind a chair or the couch if there is space behind them. Here are 17 Puppet crafts for kids you may find some that will work with the paper bag turkey puppet craft.

  1. This would be a great craft to do with my nieces. It would keep them busy creating the puppet and then they could use their imaginations to put on a puppet show!
