I LOVE this time of year.

It’s filled with so many fun traditions and allows for so many opportunities to make memories with your family. One of our favorite holidays to celebrate is Thanksgiving. I feel like it’s the best holiday to celebrate family and really share our gratitude for all we’ve been given.

A few years back I had seen some cute Pilgrim Hat Crayon Cups that I thought would be perfect to make for Turkey Day. My kids love to color and craft while the parents finish up the Turkey dinner, and I thought these cups would be great for some cute table decor to hold the crayons in. I decided to make my own version of the cups and LOVE how they turned out. They took only minutes to put together and I’ve already set them aside to use next month on Thanksgiving.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Even though we aren’t by family, I know we’ll be celebrating with friends and in case you will be gathering with friends and family too, these cups would be great for the kids table. I should also mention that they are super cheap too! Sweet!

Here is what you’ll need to make them…

SUPPLIES:

– Black Paper Cups (found mine at Hobby Lobby)

– Black Cardstock

– Ric Rac

– Scrapbook Paper

– Buttons

– Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue

– X-acto Knife

5. Fill with crayons.

NOTE: The crayons were about the same height of the cup, so I added some shredded paper inside the cups so the crayons stuck out. 😉

I love this idea so cute! What a fun way to keep the kids busy while dinner cooks. I’m going to have to make some. Thanks!

This is such a cute idea!! My twins are too young to be trusted alone at a kids table, or with crayons for that matter, but I’m pinning so I remember to do this next year.

I love the hats but what size is the car ulnar rim.

    Mzmarilyn

    Correction circular rim

      Lil' Luna

      It depends on the size of cup you use, but ours was probably about 3 inches.

These are adorable. I found them on the KBN Thanksgiving Board and will be sharing on my blog Friday in a Thanksgiving Roundup

I think these crayon cups are the most clever project I’ve seen in a long time!! Bravo!

    Lil' Luna

    Oh, thanks!!! Pretty easy, too 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!

LOVE these very very much! I have grandchildren and I know sometimes their parents are a bit frazzled when the kids start to act up a little because they’re bored. I’m surprising them with some of these activities and the pilgrim hat crayon holders. Well, we’re surprising the parents because the grandkids are helping so they’re excited.

    Lil' Luna

    What a great idea!! Thank you for sharing that!! Have fun!!
