Thanksgiving Table Decorations: Village People
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Decorate the table with paper Pilgrims and Native Americans.

What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • Cardboard tissue tubes
  • Colored paper
  • Fine-tipped markers
  • Glue

How to make it

  1. For each figure, wrap a cardboard tissue tube with a 4- by 6-inch rectangle of colored paper and glue the paper in place.

  2. Draw the facial features on a 2- by 3-inch piece of paper with markers. Glue the face onto the tube.

  3. For the hair, cut fringe along one side of a small paper rectangle. Roll the hair around a pen to make curls, trim it, and glue it into place.

  4. Cut and decorate headbands and feathers for the Native Americans and collars for the Pilgrims.

  5. For the Pilgrim girl's bonnet, wrap a 2- by 5-inch paper rectangle around the top of the tube with the ends overlapping and glue at the back.

  6. For the Pilgrim boy's hat, cut out a black circle 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Roll and glue a black, 2- by 5-inch paper rectangle into a tube shape. Cut slits along one end, fold in the tabs, and glue them to the center of the paper circle. Add a 1/2-inch band and square buckle and glue the hat to the boy's head.
