How to Make Easy Pilgrims & Indians AND The Mayflower Ship!



If you are looking for a fun and easy craft for your kids at Thanksgiving you might want to try making a simple set of Pilgrims and Indians.

In the past my children have made these and had so much fun with it!

All you do is get some cardboard tubes (like toilet paper rolls or cut a paper towel roll in half) and cut out some construction paper and glue on the clothes, face, hair and hats with some glue stick. We would use also use a marker to draw in the face and details. It's so easy and they are so cute for displaying on your mantle.

One time the kiddos make an entire village of Pilgrims and Indians-- complete with teepees and a small fire to cook fish on. I loved how they ran with the idea and ended up using their imaginations!

We have also made the Mayflower Ship as well. We have done it a few different ways like making one out of a butternut squash carving, or an empty cardboard shoebox box, or using a huge appliance box to make a real ship you could actually get into and steer complete with mast (yes, we are that crazy and do those kinds of things around here!). It was fun to make and the kids still talk about it every year Thanksgiving rolls around. You can also find some really great ideas here that are more customized to your child's age.

But if you are short on time you could also use a Mayflower kit. These are great for decorating your home during Thanksgiving or even using it as a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving dinner! I think it would be a great idea to even incorporate it into your homeschool as a unit study too.


Here are a few notable ones I found:




 This one is a 3D Mayflower Jigsaw Puzzle Kit--it looks pretty neat to try out!






This one uses bricks like Legos--which would be a great building activity!




Here is another Mayflower kit that the kids will love!



You can find many more model kits HERE.

I also highly recommend some of these helpful books if you are teaching your children about Pilgrims and Indians to help them learn the history behind it all:

THE STORY OF THE PILGRIMS




PILGRIMS OF PLYMOUTH




THE FIRST THANKSGIVING

The NEW 2019 Homemaker's Friend Daily Planner & Giveaway!





Do you struggle with homemaking?

Are you looking to get more organized in the coming year?

As a homemaker of over 26 years to a large family I know how important it is to have an organized home and life. If things are not the way I need them to to be to function, things can easily fall apart at the seams!

Over the years I really realized the importance of organization and planning and what a difference they can make in my day. It can really "make" or 'break"my entire week.

I am so grateful when I find something that can really help homemakers especially in the long run--not just because we need help now, but we also need that help to last. That is where The Homemaker's Friend Daily Planner 2019 comes in---it was created by a mom just like you and me who really knows and understood what our needs are!








Can you see what she has added on the cover?

"Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him"    ~Psalm 37:7


What a much needed reminded in the midst of our busy homemaking days!


Planners are awesome because they keep everything in order and also help to:


1. Keep your goals in front of you.

2. Keep you organized.

3. Help you to be efficient and not waste time.
