Here’s an activity for making a Pilgrim or Abraham Lincoln cabin.
- Start by washing out school milk boxes; dry them, and staple them shut again.
- Paint the boxes brown, or cover them with a 2-inch strip of brown paper.
- Have the children glue small straight pretzels that lay like logs all around the box.
- Next, cover the roof with a piece of brown paper and sprinkle with brown colored coconut. To color coconut just add food coloring to it and shake it up in a plastic bag.
This makes a fun Thanksgiving or Presidents Day project for the little ones.
