Thanksgiving Craft: Complete the Pass

Complete the Pass

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

You don't need a whole team to kick off this sporty variation on pin the tail on the donkey - just a felt football, a ready receiver, and a blindfold.


  • Felt
  • Poster board
  • Cord
  • Scissors
  • Thread and needle
  • Newspaper or batting
  • Glue
  • Velcro


Start by making two small holes in the top corners of a 12-by-15 1/2-inch piece of poster board. Then fashion a hanger by threading a cord through the holes and knotting the ends.

From felt, cut out the head, chest, and hands of a football player in uniform and glue them onto the poster board.

For a football, stitch together the edges of two matching felt ovals, leaving a 2 1/2-inch gap. Stuff the ball with newspaper or batting, then stitch the gap. Glue a strip of Velcro onto the football. Now, one at a time, blindfold the contestants and see who can stick the ball onto the receiver's hands.
