Pilgrim Hat

Time Duration: 5 Minutes


  1. Get a black piece of paper, cut out a hat-like shape.

2. For the buckle, cut out a square from yellow paper. Fold it in half so the flat sides meet. Cut a rectangle shape on the folded side only!

3. For the strap cut out a thin piece of brown paper and place between the black and gold buckle. Make sure its in the middle of the gold square.

4. Use tape or glue to secure all your pieces, and enjoy!

Hand Turkey

  1. Trace your hand a bunch of times on colored paper, it doesn't have to be perfect. Varying sizes give the Turkey character! You could also use white paper and then color it in.

2. Next is the body. Cut out two circles, one for the body and a smaller one for the head!

3. Tape or glue a couple of the hands you made together in a fan formation to the fingers are pointing upwards. Attach body to the bottom of the palms to create the illusion of a body with feathers.

4. For the details cut out eyes and beaks and add them to the heads of your turkeys. Don't be afraid to get creative by varying colors or by giving your turkey a hat or a scarf.
