Kids Craft-Thanksgiving Indians from Paper Bags

Kids love holidays when they get involved. Thanksgiving can be a little tricky to get kids involved other than the basic turkey shaped craft. This year we went in a new direction. We used basic brown paper grocery bags to make Indian costumes.

Using the body portion of the bag cut underarm holes. Then using the bottom portion of the bag cut  to go over the shoulders as straps. Staple the strap to the front and back of the bag vest you created. Then cut the bottom of the vest into fringe. Let the kids draw Indian symbols all over the vest. Then using the remaining strips from the bottom of the bag make a headband and add some paper feathers to the back.

Now we can all celebrate Thanksgiving in style.
