Thanksgiving Craft Idea: Mayflower Ship

The great thing about this Thanksgiving craft idea is that it’s simple and can be used as place settings or as a craft for the kids at your Thanksgiving gathering.

Thanksgiving Craft Idea: Mayflower Ship

Thanksgiving Ship Craft

What you will need for this ship is:

  • egg cartons
  • toothpicks
  • fabric or paper
  • treats

Cut out your egg cartons into individual holders. Make 2 holes with the toothpicks through the fabric and then run it through the toothpicks to create flags.  Poke toothpicks through egg carton and  your done.

This was also featured in our Celebrating Fall Issue.

Here it’s  used as a place setting.
