Pilgrim Hat Activity

This was a fun and festive way to review shapes in our preschool at home. A great Thanksgiving preschool activity using a simple Pilgrim Hat! And best of all, it was so simple to make and LB(4) loved it! 
Check it out!



 Pete the Cat - The First Thanksgiving is a perfect book to pair with this activity!


Supplies:

Prep Work:
  • Using the black craft foam, cut out a pilgrim hat shape (a brim, and a slightly pointy hat, but flat on top)
  • Using the white paper, cut out a strip. This will be the ribbon on the hat.





  • Then glue the white strip onto the black hat.
  • Using the yellow craft foam, cut out several different shapes. I cut out the 7 shapes you see below:





  • Then bend each shape in half and cut the middles out. Now they are buckles!




How to Play!
  • Lay out all the shapes and the hat. Name a shape and have your child place that shape on the middle of the hat as the buckle. :)
  • You could also hide the shapes around the house and have your child search for them, name them, then put them on.
  • LB(4) and I also played a guessing game. One of us would turn around while the other placed a buckle on the hat. Then we would try to guess what shape the buckle was. When we got it right, we switched. :)



Many fun ways to play!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)
