Pilgrims and Indians @AmandaRydell of Be Crafty

We are are so thrilled to be sharing this adorable Pilgrims and indians craft from Amanda of BeCraftyWorkshop.Com.

Scroll down for the perfect weekend craft to make with the littles ones!

Do you remember making paper bag costumes and dressing up like a pilgrim or indian in elementary school ??   I always wanted to dress up like an indian, maybe because of the colorful feathers and pretty headbands.

I know I said I was jumping out of fall early and into winter , I just couldn’t leave behind this cute thanksgiving kids craft Jessica and I created with two of our favorite little girls.

Inspired by last years spoon puppets, we thought It would be fun to celebrate Thanksgiving with a fun afternoon project for both you and your child to enjoy. I know we sure had a lot of fun !!!

To make the puppet spoon indians we used the following supplies:

  1. wood spoon ( we found a cheap 4 pack at wal-mart)
  2. paint in a variety of colors
  3. beads and string
  4. felt ( + hot glue)
  5. twine
  6. washi tape and wire (feathers)
  7. burlap

To make the puppet spoon pilgrims we used the following supplies:

  1. wood spoon
  2. paint in a variety of colors
  3. black yarn
  4. ribbon
  5. lace
  6. black ,white and yellow paper
  7. hot glue

 I know I am guilty of getting caught up in the pre-consumerism of Christmas, especially with the early snow fall and the stores showing off their pretty tree’s and playing Christmas music.

I hope this little spoon puppet project will inspire you to take a step back to enjoy a fall afternoon of crafting and to share all the things you are thankful for.
