Let's Make a Pilgrim! Thanksgiving Pilgrim Craft and Writing Activity

Mostly used with 1st and 2nd students.

Includes: PDF, 25 pages

I have had so many people contact me after seeing these pilgrims on my class website that I thought it would be a great project to create a template for them to use. I had the original idea for these cute little guys from an amazing teacher. Over the years, I just modified them but hadn’t really created a “template “…”. It was something that I had “ballparked” as I cut out the pieces each season.
Today is the day! Finally, I created a template that you can use. You can use the template to create a craft. The activity page is what the pilgrim holds, and it is entitled “I am thankful ______”. Additional writing prompts have been added to suit different levels of students. An alternative pilgrim hat can be used by your children with the help of a sentence strip. Each page has step-by-step instructions. This craft will work well with any of your Thanksgiving Thematic units. We hope you enjoy it!

Note: This is a bit of a labor intensive craft BUT turns out to be a KEEPSAKE that parents will LOVE. You can easily cut the pieces for older students. Younger students can easily cut the pieces. I ask my parents to help me or I do it myself.

This craft is absolutely adorable! This craft is adorable! We turned our heads upside down and glued our heads together. We got pilgrims without necks! They were adorable, though. This was not the fault of the seller/creator. This craft allows for so many possibilities. I printed the hair designs on several shades of construction papers. They had to cut their hair by me, which was stressful for me as there were so many. However, I’m a perfectionist and sometimes have trouble letting go. This is a guided craft. This would be too difficult for kindergarteners to complete by themselves, but that is okay with us. It was fun!
