Just in time for Thanksgiving! This is the project the kids made while the adults prepared for dinner. Perfect way for kids to keep occupied.
Native American Headpiece
- 1 sheet of construction paper for headband and any amount for feathers
- 1 popsicle stick (optional)
- template for feather (included in steps) or a real feather
- hard card stock paper (scrapbook paper works too)
- rotini (twists),elbow, farfalle (butterflies/bows), ruote (cartwheels), and/or rigatoni pasta
- markers or paint
- hot glue gun (works the best) or elmer’s glue
- a passport sized photo
- short piece of yarn about 9 inches long
- hole punch
- Trace a circle on the backside of the paper with a small rectangle on top for the yarn and cut it out
- Glue the photo onto the middle of the ornament
- Color in the pastas various colors
- Glue it onto the paper in random order
- Punch a hole in the middle of the rectangular area

You can make different ones with a picture of your favorite things to hang all over the Christmas tree. It could be a picture of your favorite dog, toy, food, friend, mom, dad, etc.
This Christmas tree is very easy and simple to create. All you need are items that are probably already lying around the house. The holiday stickers you see on the sample Christmas tree are the ones we received in the mail from different nonprofit organizations. It’s an environmentally friendly way of using the stickers instead of letting it go to waste.
- 1 sheet green construction paper
- scraps of different paper (scrapbooking paper works great too)
- Take the green piece of construction paper and twist it into a cone shape, tape it to hold it in place, and fold the bottom edges in so that it will stand up right.
- Once you have the base up, just use your imagination and decorate away!
This activity is a very simple activity, but you will be surprised at how long this keeps younger children occupied – especially toddlers. Toddlers are curious little people and will be fascinated at every little thing.
