Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat Craft for kids

My girl is a born crafter. She loves to create. When we got into the kitchen and she saw what we were doing she was like “okay mom I got this”. Never asked for my help after I cut the bottom of the cup out. That’s all the help she asked for. It was so simple to do. Even an 8 year old can do it.

Items needed for Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat Craft

 Here’s what you need:

black party cup from the dollar store, black construction paper, yellow construction paper, scissors, hot glue

Here’s what my girl did:

Cut out the bottom of the cup. Trace a circle around the perimeter of the cup making it about an inch wider than the cup.

Cut a square of black to go around the hat. Cut a strip of yellow and then a rectangle of yellow with the insides cut out. Assemble and hot glue into a pilgrim’s hat.
