A Pilgrim, A Native, And A Stink'N Cute Lesson.

11:33 PM

Every Monday night we have  family home evening and this week my little boys wanted to do the lesson. (they are 4 and 5 mind you) So I thought it would be a perfect time to do the lesson on Thanksgiving and break out the super cute running bull costume. Then my four year old was feeling pretty left out and was wondering if we could go to the grocery store and get him a pilgrim costume... Umm... our store is so small they don't even sell 100 calorie snacks yet (but I'm working on that, My mother in law is the assistant manager... so I have it in with some major movers and shakers in this town. ;) so I doubt that they would have a pilgrim costume.
Family home evening consisted of: Mom and Dad having to watch a 20min cartoon about Thanksgiving, Major coloring time spent on super cute Turkey printables, Reading Thanksgiving stories out of the "Friend" full of colorful pictures, and then trying to talk the kids our of re-enacting the First Thanksgiving Story in an improve play.

My five year old Loved dressing up in this fantastic Indian costume and even had me paint on some "Indian war paint" He was pretty impressed with the large feathered head band he got to wear. My favorite thing was the fun detail and design in the front. Later that night we tried washing off the lipstick I mean war paint and It just speared and gave my little guy super rosy cheeks. He came out of the bathroom all frustrated saying "Mom it just giving me pink cheeks"
I then teased " Oh, I guess you just have to have pink cheeks the rest of your life then." 
My five year old then turned to me while shaking his head and said " Mom! I don't want to look like I'm falling In Love!"

Here is a quick little printable to turn some dark church clothes into a pilgrim costumes. For the shirt I used a dark blue turtle neck, Tuck dark pants into some high-top socks, fasten the belt on the outside, add some dress shoes and this printable and Whaola! A no cost pilgrim costume! Or you could just go here and get your kid a real nice pilgrim costume that will last more than a few hours.
