Tomorrow, I will teach you how we create a pilgrim girl.
In two days, I will wrap this craftivity up by teaching you how to make a native person that can be altered to make a boy or a girl.
For the pilgrim boy:
Each child will need:
- (1) pink rectange (a 9x12 inch piece of paper cut into 4th's makes 4 faces)
- (1) 4x5 inches black rectange for top of hat
- (1) 1.5 x 6.75 inches black rectangle for hat brim
- (2) pieces of hair, each 1 x 4.5 inches (I try to give options so boys can choose hair color that matches closely to their own)
- (1) 2 x 2 inch yellow square for buckle on hat
- (1) .5 x .5 inch black square for center of yellow buckle
Turn face tall way and glue hair to bottom edge on both sides.
Step 2: Glue top hat rectangle to top of head. Lower it until you like where it sits. (Warning: have students only put glue on the forehead of the pilgrim and then place the hat, otherwise you will have glue all over your work surface.)
Step 3: Slide a line of glue right across his forehead from side-to-side where you want the brim to sit.
Step 4: Glue the yellow buckle to the center of his hat.
Step 5: Glue the small black rectangle to the center of the buckle.
Step 6: Add a face. I teach my students to draw two ovals in black. They then draw a circle in the middle of the oval and draw a tiny black dot in the center. Color the circle whatever eye color they want. Color the outside of the colored part white. I teach them to draw a nose with an "L" and a nice smile with an opened "u".
Come back tomorrow and the next day to find out how to make the pilgrim girl and the natives. I will also share a picture with you that shows how I use these to make a really cool display in my classroom.
