Pilgrim Puppets

If you're needing something to decorate the kids' Thanksgiving table with, let them help you make these...

I found this idea on kaboose.com.  Here's how to do it:

  • White, brown, black and yellow paper
  • Two short cardboard tubes
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Peach and pink crayons
  • Black marker
  • This pattern
How to...

1.  Color 2"x6" inch section of white paper with peach crayon.  Cut in half so you have 2 2"x3" pieces. 
2.  Glue the peach strips (long way) to the top of the cardboard tubes.  This will be the face.
3.  Cover the remainder of the tubes black (man) and brown (woman), overlapping the peach a little bit.
4.  Cut two collars from white construction paper using pattern.  Wrap around top of shirt and glue in place.
5.  Cut woman's hair from yellow construction paper using pattern.  Cut man's hair from brown construction paper, about the same size as woman's hair. Wrap around and glue to the top part of tube, covering the top of the peach paper.
6.  Cut hat from black paper and bonnet from white paper using patterns.  Cut a small strip of brown for the hat band, cut small strips of white for the buckle and glue together.  Glue hat and bonnet to heads.
7.  Color rosy cheeks with pink crayon.
8.  Use black marker to add eyes and mouth.
9.  Your puppets are ready to play with!
