Thanksgiving Party

We had a little Thanksgiving Party today for Brynlee's little playgroup. I'd learned from past playgroup days that these girls don't like wearing headbands, so instead of indian headbands I made some simple indian feather clips.
I saw a cute idea in Family Fun magazine of making a felt cornucopia, so I made three simple versions of it for the girls to play with. The girls had fun filling and emptying the cornucopias, and finding the matches of each vegetable/fruit. I asked the girls what they were thankful for (or what they loved) and these were what each of them said. I thought their answers were cute. I don't have good pictures of this, but we used some very authentic beads to make indian necklaces. Eating popcorn, with their new necklaces Coloring time. I replaced the crayons with fruit snacks to send home with the girls, with the little things they had made.
It was so fun to have an excuse to make some Thanksgiving crafts!

I was wondering how you made the pilgrim hats. They don't look like toilet paper rolls. look more like paper cups with the bottoms taken out. thank you for sharing and giving other inspiration .
