Popsicle Stick Pilgrim – Male

Keep the kids out of the kitchen and entertained this Thanksgiving with a fun Popsicle Stick Pilgrim craft. Just a few simple supplies are all you need!



Supplies you will need:

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Craft Paint (brown, black, white, and gold)
  • Paintbrush
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • Black and White Construction Paper
  • Cardstock / Cardboard (or just extra sticks)
  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Glitter Glue (optional)
  • Magnets (optional)
  • Sharpie (optional)

Directions for creating the popsicle stick pilgrim

Start off by using Elmer’s glue to glue on your craft sticks, 8 of them, to your cardstock or cardboard. Let dry!

Glue on the additional craft stick to create the hat portion.

Cut the pilgrim collar out of the black and white construction paper and glue together.

The next step is to paint the hat using black craft paint. Allow to dry.



Attach the collar underneath the popsicle sticks using glue.



Using brown craft paint, give your Pilgrim some hair.



Attach the small wiggly eyes and draw/paint on a face.



Now that you have allowed the hat plenty of time to dry you can paint on the belt with white craft paint and once that is dry paint on the buckle. We used gold glitter glue for that step for a little something extra.



This is optional but if you would like to turn your Pilgrim into a magnet you can just attach a small one using hot glue to the back.
