Kids’ Pilgrim Hat DIY for Thanksgiving

By Cindy Hopper

It is time to party like a Pilgrim. The best way to do this is to make sure you are wearing your Pilgrim hat for the Thanksgiving dinner!

Grab some black and brown cardstock or construction paper, a bit of gold glitter paper (found at a crafts store). You will also need scissors, a stapler and a glue stick.

First download the Pilgrim Hat Template .

Cut the hat out of black cardstock, the band out of brown cardstock and the buckle out of glitter paper.  You can also add your own glitter to the buckle piece. Also cut two to three strips lengthwise from the brown paper for the band that goes around the head.
