Pilgram Hat Craft

Here is another one we make annually.  They are so cute on their cute little heads.


Here is what we used:
Construction paper

I folded a larger piece of black paper in half. Then cut into a hat shape. Next cut a strip of the black paper and stapled to the inside to fit on head. Then l stapled sides (pictured above). Added a brim to front and the glued the buckle over staples.


Thanksgiving BINGO

Kids love BINGO, expecially if the markers are edible.  I always play coverall with the preschool kids. This particular set of BINGO cards didn’t have many options so everyone won at the same time 😉


I found these bingo cards free at http://crazylittleprojects.com/2013/11/thanksgiving-bingo.html.


Q-tip Indian Corn Craft

Dap, dap, dap, dot, dot, dot  🙂 These corn cobs will keep little fingers busy for a bit.



Here is what we used:
Construction paper
Paper bag

I cut a corn shape out of the yellow paper and the paper bag. Then cut the paper bag one down the middle.

Give the kids the yellow, a few different colors of paint, and a q-tips. Let them paint.

Then punch two holes on the bottom of the corn and one in each half of the brown corn shape.

Take the twine and tie together as pictured.


Spider Web

This web kept my little spiders busy for hours. The dance, walked, crawled, and even drove cars around on it.

Black electrical tape
Then I had a few spider stickers laying around the house.

Oreo Monster Eyeballs
