When the holidays roll around, sometimes you need to come up with a costume for a party or a play. If your children need a costume for a Thanksgiving event, dressing as Pilgrims is an obvious choice. You don't need to purchase Pilgrim costumes from a local costume shop; you can easily make the outfits yourself using things you already have or items you can find at a craft store or thrift shop.

Instructions

    Pilgrim Boy Costume

  1. 1

    Cut the black sweat pants so that they come just below the knee on the boy. Pair the trousers with a black, long-sleeved tunic-style shirt.

  2. 2

    Have the boy wear a pair of long white socks that come up to the bottom of the trousers, and pair them with a pair of black shoes.

  3. 3

    Cut buckle shapes out of a piece of yellow cardboard. Glue a yellow buckle onto the cuff of each sleeve. Glue another buckle onto each black shoe.

  4. 4

    Cut a 1-inch strip out of white poster board that is long enough to fit around the brim of the hat. Glue the white poster board onto the hat. Add a yellow buckle onto the front of the hat.

    Pilgrim Girl Costume

  1. 1

    Have the girl wear a long, long-sleeved black dress as the base of the costume. Pair the dress with white stockings and a pair of simple black shoes.

  2. 2

    Tie a plain white apron over the dress.

  3. 3

    Complete the girl's costume with a simple white bonnet tied underneath her chin.
