This is supposed to be a Thanksgiving craft, but as we will be studying American Indians and their relationships with early Pilgrims I think this would be a fun activity for the kids. I would imagine you could easily make some Pilgrims and a ship too!
Of the hundreds of Thanksgiving crafts I've seen over the years, these five are my favorites. They are easy to make and are a hit with kids. Most can be prepared ahead of time so that minimal help is needed from adults and children can dive right.
