Thanksgiving is probably the number one underrated holiday in our home.

This year, we’re aiming to change that so we’ve created more Thanksgiving crafts for kids, including this pilgrim craft for preschoolers.

Like most of our crafts, it’s simple, made from paper and comes with a free printable template.

We’ve included both a boy and a girl version so you can make one or both!

Making these simple Thanksgiving inspired crafts will help your children follow through with directions, work on scissor skills and give them a boost in confidence once they’ve completed it.

Watch our video tutorial or read our directions below to see how to make this easy pilgrim craft for kids.
