Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Bags

Thanks to Elmer's for the supplies used in this post. All opinions are my own.

Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Bags with Free Printable Template at artsyfartsymama.com

My daughter and I enjoy making holiday crafts together. This year, we have decided to create some fun Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Bags for our Thanksgiving dinner and to give to her school teachers. These turkeys are so fun to make, and I'm sure you'll love them, too! To make things easier, I've also created a free printable template for you to use so you can enjoy making some for your family and friends as well!

Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Bags with Free Printable Template at artsyfartsymama.com

Print out the turkey body template on brown cardstock. Cut it out, then use a scoring tool or bone folder to crease the horizontal lines on the pattern so you can easily fold the body to assemble the turkey.

Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Bags with Free Printable Template at artsyfartsymama.com

Print out the second page of the template on white cardstock. Cut out one feather, one foot, beak, wattle, and both sets of eyes. Use the feather foot, beak, and wattle as templates and trace them onto cardstock in the colors of your choice. You will use the eyes as-is, so you can glue the pupils on the white circles.

Speaking of glue, I would recommend using any of these kinds of Elmer's glues. For kids, the Gel School Glue Sticks work wonderfully since it's washable and dries clear. The X-TREME School Glue Stick is also washable and dries clear, but is formulated for bigger, tougher projects and is sure to give your turkey a stronger hold. The CraftBond® Permanent Tape Runner and CraftBond® Glue Spots are convenient and easy to use as a quick way to put your turkeys together.

Fold your turkey body template. On the back, glue one feather in the center. Make sure you place it so you can see about half or more of the feather from the front. Glue the remaining feathers next to that center feather.

On the bottom of the body, glue both feet down at the heels and place them so you can see the turkey's toes when the bag is standing up.

Turn the turkey's body over, and glue the eyes, beak, and wattle on the front flap. The wattle can go over the beak or under the flap - the choice is up to you!

Next, I cut an autumn cellophane bag in half and filled it with treats. Tape it closed with some washi tape. Place the bag inside the turkey standing up. Fold the front of the turkey up next to the bag. Cut another piece of washi tape and tape the bag to the turkey by going from the back of the bag to the front of the paper. You could also staple the treat bag if you don't have tape.

Pull the face of the turkey up over the front of the turkey body to cover the tape (or staple). Glue the face in place and hold until it has set. Now your turkey treat bag is complete!!

This is also a fun project for kids from start to finish! Print out the template on white cardstock instead of using colored cardstock. Let them color away with crayons*, markers or colored pencils. Then cut out the pieces, score the body along the lines and glue the pieces on with the Elmer's glue of your choice. Place a bag of candy in the center and your kids can place their custom turkeys on the Thanksgiving table or give them to their school teachers as a sweet gift before Thanksgiving break!

*Keep in mind that turkeys colored in crayon will need more glue or a stronger glue than turkeys colored in colored pencil or marker due to the waxy finish.

You can also turn this sweet turkey treat bag into a customized place setting at your Thanksgiving table! Cut a strip of cardstock and pen in your guests names with a metallic gold (or any color you like) Painters® Paint Markers.

If stunning penmanship isn't your forte, here's a secret tip: print out all of your guests names in a font you love, and simply trace over the print with your paint marker!

Thanksgiving Turkey Treat Bags with Free Printable Template at artsyfartsymama.com

Glue the name strips down on the fronts of your turkeys. Now your Thanksgiving table has a special place setting for each guest including a sweet treat for them to enjoy after dinner!

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting



3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting #SnackandSmile

Nothing is more delicious than homemade fall snacks. If you are a fan of pumpkin desserts, this pumpkin cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting will hit the spot. With only 3 ingredients, it is probably one of the easiest treats you can make and is literally "a piece of cake"!!

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting #SnackandSmile

The secret to this simple recipe is using yogurt. Any kind will do, really, but the Yoplait light Pumpkin Pie added an extra bit of pumpkin-y flavor to the cake along with helping to make the cake light and moist. You can find this seasonal edition yogurt along with other flavors, such as Yoplait Greek 100 Caramel Apple, Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! Pumpkin Cheesecake, and Yoplait original Apple Crisp at Walmart.

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake:
1 box spice cake mix
8 oz Yoplait Light Pumpkin Pie yogurt
15 oz canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients.
  2. Pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
  3. Bake at 350º for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Let cool completely before adding frosting.

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting #SnackandSmile

The cake is delightful on its' own, but when you top it with cinnamon cream cheese frosting it becomes the very essence of fall!

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 can cream cheese frosting OR
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2-3 cups powdered sugar
  1. Beat softened butter and cream cheese until well blended.
  2. Add cinnamon, vanilla and powdered sugar. Start with 2 cups of powdered sugar and beat until creamy. Add more powdered sugar as needed to get the consistency you want.

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting #SnackandSmile

I hope you try this cake for yourself. It's a simple recipe that you can bake for your family or give it away to friends and neighbors. You can also bake this recipe as cupcakes (adjust the cooking time to 10-15 minutes) for easier snacking.

What is your favorite way to snack with Yoplait? I'd love to read your ideas in the comments!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of General Mills. The opinions and text are all mine.

Free Printable Hotel Transylvania Bingo

Hotel Transylvania is one of our favorite movies to watch, especially at Halloweentime. Hotel Transylvania 2 is just as spectacular as the first, and introduces some fun, new characters. Since we can't possibly be the only ones who love Hotel Transylvania, I've created a free printable Hotel Transylvania Bingo for you all to play!

Free Printable Hotel Transylvania Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com

Hotel Transylvania Bingo includes all of your favorite characters from the Hotel Transylvania movies. In the bingo set, there are eight bingo cards in different orders, so it's easy to print and use for your parties. It's fun for every age to play, and the calling cards include the names of the characters in case you don't know who they are.

(Set includes 8 bingo cards and calling pieces in a single PDF file)

Free Printable Hotel Transylvania Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com

The blank set works a little differently. You get one bingo card with empty spaces (except for the "free" spot). Then, you print and cut out the bingo pieces so you can assemble the bingo cards yourself! Just glue the pieces in place, and you're ready to play! This is a great option for little hands that want to be creative, or if you have a larger group of people and don't want multiple cards that are the same. The blank bingo set includes all the same characters as the full set, but you can create your own bingo card setup.

(Set includes one blank bingo card, bingo pieces, and calling pieces in a single PDF file)

Game Instructions
1. Pick some kind of object to mark your squares or use a dry erase marker.
2. Give each player a Bingo card and markers (or put your own together with the blank set). Have each player put a marker over the free space.
3. Have one person choose a calling card and say it out loud., call it out or have each child mark it as they see it. Each player will cover that item on their card with a marker. Once a player has 5 squares covered in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), they call out "BINGO!" and win the game!

Some things you should know before downloading:

*You may NOT modify, re-sell, redistribute, or claim the design as your own.
*Please do not remove the credits/watermarks.
*If you share this on the internet, credit must be given to Artsy-Fartsy Mama & linked back to this post.

To lengthen the life of the prints, I would recommend printing the Bingo cards and calling pieces on cardstock and laminating or putting in a plastic page. All files are 8.5x11 inches and put together in a single PDF format.

Have fun!! Would love to hear from you if you play using my printable! If you have any bingo ideas you'd like me to make in the future, please let me know!

Spooky S'more Brownies with Free Printable Cupcake Wrappers at artsyfartsymama.com #SpooktacularSnacks #GetYourBettyOn


With Halloween almost here, I wanted to share a fun and easy spooktacular snack idea to make your next Halloween party or family night a hit! These Spooky S'more Brownies bring together all your favorite s'more ingredients and topped with spooky Halloween PEEPS®! Just get ready to make a second batch, because these will be devoured in minutes!!

Spooky S'more Brownies at artsyfartsymama.com #SpooktacularSnacks #GetYourBettyOn

Spooky S'More Brownies:
Makes 12-18 Spooky S'more Brownies
Serving Size: 1 Spooky S'more Brownie
Prep Time: 20 minutes    Cook Time: 22 minutes

1 package Betty Crocker™ Supreme Brownie Mix
   • other ingredients directed on package
Halloween PEEPS® multipack
1/2 cup Graham Cracker Crumbs (6-8 crackers)
Marshmallow Frosting (see recipe below)

Spooky S'more Brownies at artsyfartsymama.com #SpooktacularSnacks #GetYourBettyOn

Mix the brownie mix according to package directions. Add a cute Halloween cupcake liner, or generously grease the muffin tin. Fill each cavity about 2/3 full of brownie batter. Bake at 350º for 22 minutes. Do not overbake! Let the brownies cool, then remove them from muffin tin to a cooling rack.

Spooky S'more Brownies at artsyfartsymama.com #SpooktacularSnacks #GetYourBettyOn

While the brownies are cooling, you can whip up the Marshmallow Frosting:
   1/4 cup room temperature butter
   7 oz marshmallow fluff
   1/2 teaspoon vanilla
   2 Tablespoons heavy cream
   1 cup powdered sugar
  1. In a bowl, mix together the butter, marshmallow fluff, vanilla and heavy cream until combined.
  2. Turn the mixer on high and mix for 1 minute.
  3. Turn the mixer down to low and slowly add in powdered sugar. If the icing is too thin, you can add about 1/4 cup at a time until it's the right consistency.
The frosting will have a more of an icing consistency when it's first mixed together, but it will thicken up a little as it cools. If you put it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or so, it will be the perfect frosting consistency. Add a spoonful of frosting to the top of the brownie. As the frosting warms, it can start spread out, so keep that in mind! Sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs over the marshmallow frosting immediately.

Spooky S'more Brownies at artsyfartsymama.com #SpooktacularSnacks #GetYourBettyOn

Now for the best part: adding some Halloween PEEPS®! Choose your favorite Halloween PEEPS® from the multipack (ghosts, tombstones, cats, or pumpkins) and add a little bit of marshmallow frosting to the bottom. Set it on top of the brownie and hold in place for a minute so it doesn't tip over.

Spooky S'more Brownies with Free Printable Cupcake Wrappers at artsyfartsymama.com #SpooktacularSnacks #GetYourBettyOn

The brownies are ready to eat! If you are making these Spooky S'more Brownies for a party or want to give them as a gift, I've designed some adorable Halloween brownie cupcake wrappers for you to wrap them in!

There are 4 designs to choose from and they are so easy to put together! Cut out each wrapper, then simply bring the ends together and tape in place. Put the brownie in the center and that's it! A super cute way to share a Halloween treat!
