Practice pilgrim-like penmanship with ink-dipped feather pens.

What you'll need

  • Large feather (available at craft stores)
  • Craft knife
  • Washable ink
  • Paper or place cards

How to make it

  1. To make the quill, use a pen to outline a triangle, with a sharp tip, on the base of the feather.

  2. Use the craft knife to cut along the triangle so as to form a sharp point (a parent's job).

  3. To use the pen, dip the tip into a jar of ink and then dab it onto a piece of paper towel before writing. Practice writing on paper or script place cards for table toppers with an authentic touch.
