I wanted to share my ideas on how to make simple Pilgrim hats and collars for boys and girls. They are perfect for your Thanksgiving classroom celebration or play.
Boy Hat – Cut out a hat from black construction paper (pattern below). Glue on a buckle. Attach it to a tagboard headband.
Girl Hat – Follow the instructions below using a large sheet of white construction paper (12 x 18)
Step 1: Fold the paper into thirds.
Step 2: Cut along both folds stopping halfway.
Step 3: On the opposite side from the cut edge, fold the paper up lengthwise (about 1 inch)
Step 4: Fold the 2 ends downward forming a hat shape.
Step 5: Turn the hat to the back and fold down the middle piece.
Step 6: Fold each end piece inward and staple or tape to form the back of the hat.
Step 7: Attach a piece of string to each side of the front.
Pilgrim Collars – Fold a 12 x 18 piece of white construction paper in half. Cut a circle (hole) for the neck.
