In our house we have a baby Pilgrim and a three year old Indian Chief who love to play and happen to be sisters.
First, let’s make the Indian Chief Hat.
All you need is:
Construction Paper, 2 Pipe Cleaners, Beads, Crayons, Glue Stick and Scissors
First, have your child color a white piece of construction paper.
Cut two strips off of the white paper and then tape them together. (shown below)
Then, measure your child’s head by wrapping the strips around their head and tape it closed.
Cut out different color feathers out of construction paper and have your child color them too.
Then, glue the feathers to the hat.
Have your child string beads on the pipe cleaner after you have made a knot on one end of the pipe cleaner.
Once the feathers are dry; push a pipe cleaner through each side of the band.
Your Indian hat is complete.
The Pilgrim Hat
All you need is:
A black piece and yellow, and orange piece of construction paper, glue stick and scissors.
Make the shapes shown in the picture below.
Glue them on the hat and your hat is complete.
The girls loved playing together as pilgrims and Indians.
I think Mia loves that she can dress up her little sister anyway that she wants.
I went one step further since my three year old loves to make noise and made her an Indian inspired drum.
To make the drum all you need is:
A cylinder container with a lid ( I used a country time lemonade container), Construction paper, feathers, string, beads, hot glue, Crayola crayons and scotch tape.
Cover the cylinder with any color construction paper. Then, have your child use their Crayola Crayons and color the cylinder.
Once, your child colors the cylinder have the glue the strips to the cylinder. (We used purple construction paper)
Next, string the beads onto the string and glue the string to the feathers.
Then, hot glue the string with feathers to the cylinder.
You’re drum is complete and is ready to be played with.
