While it may seem like we just finished Trick or Treating with our children, Thanksgiving really is next week! We wanted to share with you an easy craft to do with your children and decorate your Thanksgiving Table.

What you’ll need:

  • Toilet paper tubes (the amount depends on the amount of guests)
  • Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • A black marker

How to make this Thanksgiving Craft
The Pilgrim:

  1. Cover a toilet paper roll with black construction paper
  2. Glue a smaller patch with pink construction paper to form a face.
  3. Trace and cut a collar (as pictured) on white constructions paper. Glue the collar under the pink construction paper.
  4. Cut a square on black construction paper to form the base of the hat. Cut a strip and glue the ends together to form a circle and the hat.
  5. Draw the face and buttons on your pilgrim.
  6. Write the name of a guest on any colored paper and glue it to the hat

The Native American:

  1. Cover a toilet paper roll with beige (in this case we used orange) construction paper
  2. Glue a smaller patch with pink construction paper to form a face.
  3. Cut a strip of black construction and also cut fringe on one side of the strip to create hair. Glue on top of the pink construction paper
  4. Trace and cut feathers on other colors of construction paper
  5. Write the name of a guest on one of the feathers and attach it to the top of the roll.
