Pilgrim Hats

Scary decorations? Check.  Trick or treat candy bought, eaten, and rebought three times over? Check.  Kids wrestled into costumes and given too many treats?  Check and check.  Thanksgiving, here we come.  I looooove Thanksgiving.  What's better than a holiday celebrating food, family, and thankfulness?  Especially when I don't host it.  (Thanks, Donna!) So let's start with a joke:  Why did the pilgrim's pants keep falling down?  Because his buckle was on his hat!  Bwaaa haaa haaa. 

We made some pilgrim's hats.  Similar to our witch hats, this was so easy, my three year old made his own.  Keebler cookies, a mini peanut butter cup from the trick or treat bag, and some frosting to glue it all together.  We got the idea from here.


To go along with our snacks, we read The Littlest Pilgrim.  My three year old really liked this one.  It's about Mini, who is the smallest pilgrim in her village.  She wants to help, but everybody tells her she's too small.  I think it's easy for preschoolers to identify with the main character.  At the end of the book, she discovers that she's not too little to make a friend.  It's a really sweet story.

Also, a big thank you to Andie over at Crayon Freckles for featuring my Halloween Word Sort at her Tip-Toe Thru Tuesday link party!

  15. These are so cute! I love making food crafts for my children to take to school. I always make something at Thanksgiving since there's no party or treats for it. Gives the kids something to be excited about. I'll have to try these this year. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
