Thanksgiving Week - (almost free) treats for kids

We're having a "little turkey" playdate tomorrow. 
I wanted to have some fun treats for everyone.  

It all started with She's {kinda} Crafty's Turkey Toes printable 
(full disclosure - I planned the playdate so I could use these tags). 

Aren't they adorable!  And they are FREE!
I'll be using candy corn as the 'toes' - it was leftover from Halloween.

Since the tags were free, it was my goal to keep the co$t down for everything!!

I like the kids to have an activity when we have 'parties'.
I thought cookie decorating would be fun.  
I considered making cupcakes but went with store bought sugar cookies.  
I already have lots of icing (from the tub) and candy (from Halloween).  
So, for just the cost of cookies, 
we have an inexpensive activity that feeds them too :)

In case the little turkeys get thirsty, I made these fun Turkey Boxes yesterday. 


I already had the juice boxes (the lizard takes them in his lunch) 
and all the construction paper.  
Cut your paper to fit the box, 
cut feathers, cut eyes & beak then tape them all on.  
Super easy (and quite cute).

I have a sickness when it comes to party favors.  
I have to give them at every get-together.  
It's hard coming up with creative, practical and cost effective ideas.  

As soon as I saw the Pumpkin Spice Playdough shared on The Idea Room,
I knew I had to make it!  
I had all the ingredients in the cabinet so I consider this a 'free' favor.

And can I tell you???  
It smells delish!

There you have it, my wallet friendly treats for all the little turkeys in your life :)
If you use any of these ideas, I'd love to hear!!
