Pilgrim Hat

It’s the season for Thanksgiving pagents and plays. Here’s the perfect answer for your pilgrim fathers. 

Supplies

2 Brown paper bags or a large sheet of kraft mailing paper
Masking Tape
Old Belt (or paper or cloth strip)
Beach Bucket

Instructions

Measure around the rim of the bucket with the belt and ask an adult to punch another hole and cut off the extra piece of belt. Loop belt into a circle and buckle belt.

If using paper bags, open up the sides and cut off the bottoms. Tape them together. Place paper centered over the upside-down beach bucket. Press paper down with hands around bucket to shape. Place looped belt over top and push down to the bottom of the bucket near the rim securing the paper in place. Remove hat from bucket.

I'm a homeschool mom of six. My family has been homeschooling for about eleven years. And, each year, we've learned a little more about having fun, and spending less, while learning more. It's great to be a homeschooler!
