Thanksgiving Crafts-Paper Pilgrim

5 Nov

Supplies: scissors, construction paper, regular paper, brown, yellow, or orange string, and glue or tape

Step 1

Trace the bottom of a cup on tan or cream construction paper. This will be the face, now you can draw eyes, a nose, and a mouth.

Step 2

If you want a girl pilgrim, cut out a bonnet (the shape is kind of like half of a circle.) If you want a boy cut out a shape kind of like a top hat but shorter. Then tape or glue this to the top of the head.

Step 3

For the girl, make a dress by cutting a square for the top half of the dress, for the bottom half cut out a rectangle. For sleeves cut out small circles, and glue or tape them to the square. Next glue or tape the square to the rectangle, then glue it to the head. (Use black, gray, or lavender construction paper.) For an apron cut out a square from the regular white paper and glue or tape it to the dress.

Step 4

To make the boy pilgrim clothes, cut out a square and two rectangles (the rectangles should be about two inches long.) then glue or tape the rectangles to the square. These will be the sleeves. Then cut out some pants, (you should use gray or black construction paper.) Then glue the shirt to the head and then glue or tape the pants to the shirt. Using yarn or string tie a bow and glue it to the top of the shirt.

Step 5

To make hands use the color construction paper you used for the face, and cut out a shape that kind of looks like the bottom of a bread stick. For shoes do the same thing but use brown, black, or gray construction paper.

Step 6

Then using brown, orange, or yellow string or yarn make hair and glue or tape it to the face.
