What a fun way to practice fine motor skills and name letter recognition? These pilgrim craft preschool templates are it this year. These fun Thanksgiving crafts are a hit with kids. These crafts also are a great way to teach kids all about the first Thanksgiving. Use these fun crafts as a conversation starter.
I’ve made several editable name writing freebies and activities on this blog. I love making them and creating themes around them too.
All you need is some construction paper, coloring crayons, glue and you’re good!

This Thanksgiving craft is even better than a paper plate pilgrims craft. Just print the free printable template at the end of this post, prepare some glue sticks, scissors and coloring crayons and kids will get to work straight away!
The best part about this simple craft is that preschoolers get to practice working on the letters in their name along with tracing their names!
I like to make easy crafts to help involve toddlers in themed crafts too.

Best pilgrim crafts
Kids will make their own pilgrim by cutting the shaped template, then tracing their name on the sheet, cutting that paper cut out and adding it to the pilgrim head.
They will then cut out the letter boxes in their names and glue them underneath the pilgrim. They can decorate their pieces, but also you can cut out the pilgrim face and add a photo of the child for added personalisation. So much fun.
