The Mayflower



  1. Cut off the bottom of a cup. Cut two slits with the tip of your scissors at the center edge of the cup. Place the cup, bottom side up, into the center of a cup holder.
  2. Cut 2 paper rectangles per boat to make sails. Cut 2 tiny slits at the center of each sail at the top and bottom. Push stirrers through the slits.
  3. Add a paper flag to the top of each mast. Push the sticks into the slits in the cup.


Tabletop Turkey


Instructions for Tabletop Turkey:

  1. Paint a paper cup brown. Turn the cup upside down and glue a pom-pom to the top of the cup for the head.
  2. Cut nine 4-inch leaf shapes from different colors of construction paper. Fold a 1-inch-square piece of orange construction paper in half; cut a triangle shape out of the folded paper for the beak. Using a 2-inch square of red paper folded in half, cut a heart shape to create the turkey’s wattle.
  3. Glue the beak and wattle to the pom-pom. Add googly eyes. Glue on the “feathers.”



Instructions for Native Necklace:

  1. Remove the top ring of a paper cup. Punch 2 holes in the top of the ring and 1 hole in the bottom center. Paint the ring.
  2. Cut a 20-inch piece of cord. String 1 bead on each end. Make a loop and place one end through each top hole. String a few wooden beads onto the cord, creating a “Y” shape. Push 2 cords through the center hole. Add a single bead to keep in place.
  3. Attach a feather and bead to each end of the cord to finish.


Cup On The Cob for Snacks


Instructions: (They have popcorn in this)

  1. Cut an oval corncob shape slightly larger than the paper cup out of yellow construction paper. With crayons, draw kernels on the paper. Glue to the front of the cup.
  2. Cut a piece of crepe paper, 11 inches high by 12 inches long (this may vary depending on size of cup). Glue the crepe paper around the cup to create the corn husk. Crinkle and gather the paper at the top as you glue around the cup.
  3. Fill a snack bag with popcorn and place inside the cup. Gather the top of the crepe paper and tie with a piece of raffia.



Feather Place Mats

    These are really cute ideas Things always go smoother when the kids can help. They are happier when they can take ownership of the project.

  2. These are so adorable! I bet a lot of families will have fun using these tutorials to spend time crafting together. I love the holidays, but my kids are older, they are much more concerned with football and food! I really love the wreath, the frame is awesome, I never would have thought about that, very creative.
