The Crabby Pilgrims

Good grief ... how funny are these? We were finishing up school today and were trying to get through a craft project. The boys, for some reason, were really crabby and picking on each other. This is unlike them, so I figured they were tired and wanted to call it a day. So, in between bickering with each other, we managed to get these Finger Puppet Pilgrims created. When the time came for the faces, they both drew these hideous, crabby expressions. I started laughing hysterically, which seemed to lighten up their moods a bit.

Aren't they just the happiest couple you've ever seen? I'm definitely saving these. Most of our Thanksgiving decorations are kid's crafts. The Crabby Pilgrims will receive a place of honor with our other items -- a reminder of that crabby, Friday afternoon in November 2010.


  1. Hysterical! And I kind of think real Pilgrims would have been cranky looking.

  2. Love it! I'm sure I've been a crabby Thanksgiving pilgrim more than a few times myself!

  3. Love the expressions! Happy Thanksgiving.
