We know you're in a rush for Thanksgiving to come, but it will take patient hands to make this 3-D pilgrim picture.

What You'll Need:

  • Poster board
  • Markers
  • Glue
  • Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • Lentils
  • Uncooked spaghetti

From tiny seeds grow mighty trees -- and mighty pilgrims, too.

Draw a large outline of a pilgrim on a piece of poster board. Give him a hat, knee breeches, a shirt with a collar or a short jacket, a belt, long stockings, and shoes.

Glue the seeds one at a time to fill in the outline. Overlap the seeds to fill in all the gaps. Use sunflower seeds for the black hat, shoes, and belt. You can color pumpkin seeds with markers to fill in other areas. Lentils can be used for the eyes, nose, and mouth.

Break pieces of uncooked spaghetti to glue on for the hair. You will have to work carefully to make this picture, but you'll have the patience of a pilgrim when you are through.

Everyone knows yams are a delicious part of Thanksgiving dinner. But they can also be eaten for breakfast. Next, you'll learn a savory and easy yam recipe.
