How to make your very own Thanksgiving Hats
To make your own Indian style hat you will need to print it on card stock so it stands on your child’s head correctly. Next, Let them color all of the pieces then cut them out. I chose to use tape instead of staples today, but you could use either.
Tape the feathers to the hatband, then cut or tape the hatband to fit your child’s head.
The other hats just need to be colored, cut out and taped to a band.
