Simple Paper Pilgrim Bonnet

Simple Paper Pilgrim Bonnet

This easy craft is a fun way for your little ones to feel like they're a part of the Thanksgiving story. Our four-year-old, Jackson, helped make this hat for his three-year-old sister.  They both got a kick out of it and cracked up when they looked in the mirror!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. paper
  2. ruler
  3. glue stick
  4. scissors
  5. ribbon
  6. hole punch
  1. Use the template to the left as reference as you cut and fold the sheet of paper. Use a hole puncher to punch out the black holes.

  2. We helped our son make the straight lines with a ruler, and then he did the cutting (which he is very proud of).

  3. Fold over the horizontal flap along the dotted lines and glue the flap down with a glue stick.

  4. Fold the bottom corners of the hat inwards so that the corners overlap and glue down. (This makes the back of the bonnet.) Then, glue down the top flap to make it secure.

  5. Measure and cut 12 inches of ribbon and tie through the holes.

  6. Put the hat on your little one's head and tie the ribbon snugly under the chin. Now your kiddo looks ready to churn her own butter!
