Paper Plate Mayflower Craft Kit by Uppity Owl

"Paper Plate Mayflower"
Uppity Owl

With Thanksgiving right around the corner I'm sure you're already caught up in your planning. Traveling plans, dinner plans, dessert plans (yes, dessert gets it own mention), table setting plans...but, what about plans to keep the kiddos busy?

Here is an adorable craft to do just that. I truly enjoyed creating this easy to do "Paper Plate Mayflower." I wanted to add hearts all over the sails just because it's so cute, but in keeping it as traditional looking as possible, I refrained. This paper plate Mayflower is the perfect activity to do after reading any Thanksgiving story, waiting for dinner, keeping the kids busy while you cook or as a family activity. Enjoy!

Here's how you can make this season appropriate craft: (didn't that sound professional, or something lol)

  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun & Sticks
  • Paste
  • 2 Popsicle Sticks
  • White Paper Plate
  • Red Construction Paper
  • Black Construction Paper
  • White Construction Paper
  • Brown Paint
  • Brown Marker
NO GLUE GUN: If you want this activity to be completely kid friendly, just use Elmer's glue instead of the glue gun. I would paste the windows on first before the popsicle stick sails. That way, using the Elmers glue will be the last step and your kids can just walk away to play while it dries.


1. Cut paper plate in half and use the brown marker to color boats rim.

2. Paint the rest of the boat with brown paint. Set aside to dry.

3. Cut out the red flats, 3 boat windows and 2 white sails.

4. While the paint is still drying, attach the sails and flats to the popsicle sticks with paste. Be sure to leave enough stick below the flag to attach to the plate.

5. When paint is dry, use glue gun to attach the popsicle sticks to the back of the boat. Leave enough space between them so the sails do not touch each other.

6. Cover the back of the windows with paste completely, then paste them to the boat. Turn the boat over and press the windows firmly.

Gobble Gobble!
