A Paper Bag Turkey and a Special Thanksgiving Message from "Little Chief Rockin' Monkey"

Yesterday, adorned in construction-paper headdresses, macaroni necklaces, and playing coffee can tom-toms, my daughter's Kindergarten class entertained us with songs and poems of Thanksgiving.  Yes, yes indeed, "America's got Talent!"  It was a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season!

The Kindergarten families contributed to a potluck feast after the performance, and I was really happy that the Paper Bag Turkey (stuffed with popcorn) that I made, using the tutorial at One Charming Party, was such a big hit.  If you're looking for a fun centerpiece for the kids' table at your next holiday feast, you may want to check this out.  It was so easy (took me less than 15 minutes) and is a great way to recycle paper bags from the grocery store.

Wishing you and yours a most splendid holiday, STUFFED with all of your most favorite things, I leave you with this short message from my very own "Little Chief Rockin' Monkey":



  1. Love this!! I can't wait to try it out... Too late this year, but next year it will be on my list:)

    I love all the new ideas and recipes I get from reading your blog:) Makes me look more impressive at Holidays, LOL!

  2. How cute it that?! I love this idea! I'm betting you could make other shapes as well.

    Your son is too cute! I loved the video. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

  3. I did it with my children this year actually today. We made only one huge drumstick but there was so much excitement!
