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
If you are looking for something nice to make for a Christmas feast this project will act a nice touch to the dining table. It may not be those fancy napkin rings you find in the store but it is fun, personal, and the materials are most likely around the house.
- one sheet each of red, white, and orange paper
- ribbon (optional)
- cut a small strip of red paper about 6 inches long and two and a 1 Ā½ inches wide(reuse the paper)
- tape to the size wanted
- cut three circles one smaller than the other out of white paper (this will be the snowman’s body)
- glue the pieces together and draw a face and buttons with a marker
- optional: if you have little googly eyes, you can use those instead of drawing it in
- fold a small piece of orange paper to a cone shape and to use as a nose
- you can choose to make a hat for the snowman
- if you have a small ribbon tie it shoe lace style and glue it to red ring and glue the snowman on top or just glue the snowman on
If you are getting ready for christmas here is something fun to do! You can even stuff it with little gifts or dirty coal.
- stocking template
- two red sheets of construction paper
- rim template
- one white sheet of construction paper
- threading needle (optional)
- cut stocking template out and trace on both red sheets of construction paper
- cut rim template out and trace two times on white construction paper
- once you have everything cut, take the two stocking pieces and use the tooth pick to poke holes in them and make them about an inch wide
- after that use the toothpick to poke the string through the holes in a weaving pattern,if you have a threading needle use that instead, it will be much easier.
- glue the two white rims on
- finally, decorate it!

- rotini (twists),elbow, farfalle (butterflies/bows), ruote (cartwheels), and/or rigatoni pasta

- 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
- stick one end of the string through the hole and tie a knot to complete the loop
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!
