16 Nov 2010 Thanksgiving Project: Pilgrim Hats!

A thanksgiving feast!Want to do something this Thanksgiving that is  fun and easy for your kids?  We will have 6 kids at our house this year and I wanted to do something for them that would be an easy project to make and super festive.  So, Why not Pligrim hats and Native American headdresses?  After researching the project I realized how simple it would be for the kids to make this project but also inexpensive.  One of the simple turn offs to great kids projects can be the cost.  With all the kids we will have this year, we needed a great kids project, like Pilgrim Hats and Native American Headdresses to let the kids run around in and something we could make at home with them.

I looked up the ideas on the internet of course!  I looked at MarthaStewart.com first but she does not necessarily specialize in kids crafts.  I found a great website where they demonstrate the Pilgrim hats being made.  This is a great kids project with good reviews and we are excited to have our own little Pilgrims and Native Americans join us for this Thanksgiving feast!   Please check out our video and see us making the hats!  Another project our kids will be doing this Thanksgiving is Making Christmas wish collages and watching the new animated Christmas Carol.
