A shape pilgrim craft to help kids learn or review shapes just on time for Thanksgiving.
A shape craft is a nice combination between art and math. Preschoolers get a chance to learn some basic shapes and kindergartners will have the opportunity to review them.
You can pair this pilgrim craft with the pilgrim shape matching activity we made last year. The matching activity uses eight shapes and it’s great to try in the classroom or at home.

How to make a pilgrim
The shape pilgrim template comes with two versions:
1. home template – cut out the patterns and trace them on corresponding colored paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
