Thanksgiving Pilgrim Mom and Baby Craft

Here's a twist on the toilet paper tube aliens we made back in December 2010.  Pilgrims!  With babies! 

Happy pilgrim playdate with two mommies and their babies
Alien variation instructions are here:

Why I like this craft:
I went for the traditional Pilgrim (inspired by South Park and the WeeMee iPhone app).  My daughter copied mine and added a pink princess twist. 

What you need:
  • toilet paper tubes
  • adhesive card stock
  • googly eyes
  • scissors
  • jewels for the princess look
  • glue stick
  • tape
  • crayons or markers

For the pilgrim babies: 
Cut a toilet paper tube in half to make a short body.  Cover in cardstock and tape it shut at the back.
Cut a head out of card stock and tape it on the back side.
The short cotton swab arms on the baby crack me up.  Make the slit for the arm extra big and poke one cotton swab all the way through the front of the toilet paper tube.

For the pilgrim mommies:
Cover a toilet paper tube in card stock and tape it shut in the back.
Cut a head out of card stock and tape it on the back side.
Cut out clothes and shoes and sleeves and attach them to the body. 
Poke the hole in the toilet paper tube last and insert one end of the cotton swab.  Attach card stock sleeves with tape. 

Now go eat some some turkey and pumpkin pie!
