I have fallen in love with those cute, modern little wood peg dolls, and decided it was high time I made my own set! They looked easy enough, and require only a few simple supplies, so I came up with these cute Thanksgiving pilgrim and Indian dolls for my kids to play with. I wanted my dolls to have a clean, simple, modern look, but you could add as many details to these as you would like!
They cost me under $2 for the peg dolls (using my trusty 50% off coupons at Michaels), and were really easy and quick to make. I love them so much that now I’m debating whether or not to give them to my kids!
I know this is last minute for this Thanksgiving, but this would be a great activity for even your kids to make while you are preparing your Thanksgiving feast.
These are pretty self-explanatory, but here are the supplies and directions…
- Wood peg dolls (from any craft store- mine are from Michaels)
- Paint and fine tip paintbrush
- Optional- Sealer (I used Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze)
