Teepee Kids Craft
Here’s our newest crafting creation. We made teepees this week as we learned about American Indians. This fun and super simple craft will have your kids exploring the rich history of our country and the people. Just a few simple supplies are needed for this easy teepee kids craft! Here’s how to make it:
What You Will Need:
- 3 Disposable Straws
- Construction Paper
- Twine or string
- Bring 3 straws together close to 2 inches from the tops (if you have bendy straws, right at the bend). Take your twine and wrap around and through the straws to get them to stand up in a tripod without support. Tie in a knot
- Color on your construction paper. We did shapes of animals, rivers, trees, suns, stars, and other common themes (except my son made a car too, LOL)
- Cut construction paper into 3 triangles to fit on top of your straw structures. Secure triangles onto your straws with tape.
- Cut a small slit in one of the triangles to be the door of the teepee. Fold back for easy access.
VOILA! An easy teepee craft that can easily be tied into a history lesson for the day 🙂
