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.

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.
